Plenty of peach and lemon character with hints of green apple. Medium to full body, bright acidity and a flavorful finish. Drink now.

Gini makes its entry-level Soave Classico from 70-year-old vines rooted in volcanic and limestone soils and fermented with wild yeasts. It rests on the lees for six months at low temperatures to block malolactic conversion and retain the wine’s fresh, fruity profile. Flavors of crushed apple and pear mix with notes of nutmeg and lemon peel, brightened by crackling acidity.

Pale golden-tinged straw. Apple and pear on the perfumed nose. Light and lively but flavorful, with sneaky concentration and precision to the orchard fruit and fresh herb flavors. A lovely entry-level Soave that shows just how good this wine can be when it’s not reduced to a Sauvignon Blanc look-alike.

A lithe, light-bodied white, with racy acidity and a subtle streak of mineral, layered with nectarine, melon and pink grapefruit pith flavors. This is well-knit, with a lingering, lightly spiced finish. Drink now through 2020. 9,000 cases made.
