Corte Adami

2016 "VIGNA DELLA CORTE" SOAVE SUPERIORE D.O.C.G.

  • Top of the range Soave Superiore D.O.C.G.

    It presents aromas of white flowers, tropical fruits like mango and lychee, Golden Queen peach as well as citrus and a pleasant minerality coming from the volcanic soil composition typical of the Soave wine region.

    Dry, fresh and long elegant finish that will leave a pleasant and clean mouth-feel.

    The grapes used to produce this outstanding wine come from the small "cru" of Castelcerino in the historical town of Soave. The vines average age is about 40 years and  they managed to send the roots deeply into the ground to find the volcanic substrate which confers that recognisable typical minerality.

    Differently from other Soave wine, these grapes are harvested late in the season, towards the end of October, so they can develop the intense aromas you will find from the very first sip.

    *92 Points James Suckling: "This medium-bodied Soave has concentrated ripe-peach character, but remains surprisingly light on its feet.
    Long, lively and elegant finish. Drink or hold."
