Soave DOC 2004

A blend of 80% Garganega – an indigenous grape - and 20% Chardonnay hand harvested between late September and October from 25 year old vines. Allegrini uses the cold-maceration technique to pursue fuller flavor extraction from the skins giving the wine a rounder body and longer aging ability. Fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the freshness and integrity of its fruit aromas Allegrini Soave is refined in bottle for two months and is ready to be enjoyed upon release.

Tasting Notes

Bright straw yellow in color Allegrini Soave offers a fresh bouquet of herbs and flowers on the nose. The crisp citrus aroma lingers on the palate and is framed by great acidity and minerality. Recommended with fish dishes risotto and poultry.

Food Pairing

Extremely versatile it pairs well with both sweet and spicy dishes as well as a wide variety of appetizers and seafood antipasti.
