Soave Classico DOC
One of Italy's greatest white wines
"Delicious fresh fruit... Rocca Sveva Soave Classico is the perfect match for a variety of dishes including seafood and sushi, salads, chicken and pork."
Filippo Pedron, Winemaker Rocca Sveva Estate
The vineyards are located in the Classic Soave growing area, which includes the hills in the communes of Soave and Monteforte. The vines are planted in loose, medium-gravelly clay soils of volcanic-origin, at elevations of 100-350 meters.
VINIFICATION AND MATURATION:
The clusters are gently pressed and the must settles with gravity. The must is fermented with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures (60°F). The wine is then drawn off and left to mature.
APPEARANCE: Luminous straw yellow.
BOUQUET: Generous fragrances of blossoms and fruit-ripe apple in particular.
PALATE: Beautifully well balanced, stylish and harmonious, with appealing full flavors. Combination of fresh, lively acidity with a pleasant almond finish (characteristic of the Garganega grape).
