Inama Soave Classico 2012

Inama Soave Classico 750ML 2012        
Sku: 51666

Founded in 1960 by Giuseppe Inama, this 74 acre estate is located in Monte Foscarino, the heart of the Soave Classico region in Italy. Each vineyard imparts a unique element to the blend; the volcanic soil of Classico lends floral aromas and minerality, and the soils found in Colli Berici contribute depth and structure. The terra rossa soil of this sub-appellation are particularly well suited to growing Bordeaux blends and was the first region in Italy to plant Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carmenere. In 1992, Giuseppe handed the reins to his son Stefano who carries on his father’s legacy of minimalist intervention in the vineyards and in the cellar. The grapes are hand-picked and briefly macerated on their skins. After a gentle pressing, the musts are naturally cold settled. In order to preserve the aromas and varietal flavors, the wines are bottled with minimal fining or filtration. “We are organic in the way we grow wines, but don’t declare it”, says Stefano. “It is not a marketing tool: the quality of the wine is the marketing tool.”

Tasting notes
A medium-bodied white that offers classic notes of sweet mountain flowers combined with moderate acidity, slight nutty undertones, stone fruit and a hint of sweet roasted almonds on the finish.

Juicy, with flavors of honeyed apricot, melon and star fruit, this balanced white is well-cut and lightly floral, revealing a stony base note on the finish. Drink now. 20,000 cases made. –AN
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Oct 2013)
The delicious 2012 Soave Classico opens to a luminous, golden color and elegant tones of dusty mineral backed by beautifully balanced tangerine, exotic fruit and honeydew melon. The fruit notes are tucked safely in the background and never feel obtrusive or heavy. In the mouth, the wine is dry and refreshingly crisp. If you love Soave Classico, this base expression from Inama is one of the best on the market today. Drink 2013-2015.

Technical notes
(100% Garganega). Hand-picked estate fruit was harvested from 30+ year old vines planted at two different sites in Monteforte d’Alpone and Soave. The grapes were destemmed and macerated on its skins for 4-8 hours, pressed and settled naturally at cool temperatures. Fermented in stainless steel vats with malolactic, the wine aged for eight months before racking and bottling.
