Italy – 2020

12.5% ABV

Tasting Notes

Stunningly rich and complex, packed with apricot, honey, and pear flavors with tobacco and cedar notes, it is smooth, subtle, and velvety.

Food Matching: Heavenly with Creme brulée, cheesecakes, richly flavored ice creams, and sticky toffee puddings.

Bottle Information 

Vineyard: In the heart of the classic Soave production area, near the towns of Monteforte and Soave in the Foscarino and Zoppega hills, Roberto Anselmi selects the grapes from the vineyards that are identifiable by the adjacent 'capitelli' (chapels) which from experience are the best geographic positions to produce grapes. The terrain is hilly, with southern exposure, and the soils are volcanic in some plots of land, calcareous in others. The vines are very closely pruned, with few fruit-bearing buds, and the bunches of grapes are thinned in June.


Vinification: Ripe bunches are selected and put in a single layer in small cases (plateaux). A second selection of bunches of grapes suitable for drying on mats in a ventilated room is also made. During November bunches show evidence of 'noble botrytis'. In February, pressing takes place in pneumatic presses, and the very sweet must ferments naturally in small oak barriques. At the end of fermentation, after two decanting, the fermented juices continue to age in the same barriques for about 16 months, and from one to three years in a bottle before it is ready to drink.
