Nardello Soave Classico “Vigna Turbian”
WHY WE LOVE IT
- What is not to love about traditional, perfectly crafted Soave Classico with marked length and real “wow” factor on the palate?
Varietal Composition: Garganega 70%, Trebbiano di Soave 30%
Elaboration: The grapes are separated for the vinifications, the Trebbiano grape is worked without oxygen for keeping the aromatic complements, about this type of grape. Traditional vinification for Garganega with ripe grape, from Mount Zoppega hill, after fermentation the wine is transferred only once and left on its own noble lees until March, the wine masses are assembled. Bottling in the followig spring.
Tasting Notes: The wine color has yellowish hue enlivened by light-green shades. In the nose there are intense aromas of white flowers, sage leaves, pear and apricot, with just a slight hint of aniseed. Substantial but remarkably fresh and juicy palate: saline and silky. Beautifully-balanced and clean.
The first traces of the Nardello family’s grape-growing activities in Soave trace back to the mid-1500’s. This history means an enviable collection of cru holdings within Soave Classico, situated between Mont Zoppega and Mount Tondo. In geographical terms, these two hills represent the extreme southern border of Soave’s original boundary.
Tasting through the Nardello lineup is an eye opening exercise in the effect of soil type on the personality of Garganega-based wines, as all of Soave’s distinct terroirs are separately represented in the company’s various bottlings.
