A beautiful Soave of which the previous 2016 vintage was judged 'Best Veneto Wine' in Decanter. This offers an absolutely delicious palate of abundant yet elegant, nuanced fruit leads to lovely dry, harmonious mineral finish. These 35 yo vineyards are at 220-230m elevation on volcanic soils of basaltic clay, producing exceptional fruit and mineral brightness. A European classic and superb value at this price.


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"The volcanic soil gives the wine a note of rare elegance and complexity. Our Soave “La Capelina” [offers] a beautiful freshness and mineral olfactory sensations of flint, citrus and flower, in particular cedar and lilies, apricot and elderflower. The palate is very persistant. Excellent with fish-based first courses, as the traditional Veneto dishes, such as risi e bisi (risotto with peas), risotto with pumpkin and risotto col pessin de risaia (risotto with fish caught in the rice fields). It is also well paired with spicy meats such as the soppressa veneta. In addition, it is well paired with fresh or semi-matured cheese varieties such as the Monte Veronese DOP mezzano."​​
