Suavia Le Rive 2013

Le Rive is the name of the small area (cru) where the vineyard is located. " Riva" in the Venetian dialect means " very steep slope".   The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged for 24 months in a combination of 70% stainless steel and 30% French Barriques.  Le Rive is a velevety and appealing wine that is the perfect companion for flickering candlelight and a crackling fire.  

Tasting Notes

Intense and brilliant yellow with soft golden highlights.  The aroma is of rich pineapple and tropical fruits and of sweet spices of ginger and cardoman.  The mineral notes are very crisp and clear and give the wine a freshness and elegance.  Good persistance with a savory and balanced finish. 

Food Pairing

Perfect with every kind of smoked meat or fish, dishes based on poultry, pork, or veal, and ripe cheeses from cow or goat’s milk.
