Roccolo Grassi, Soave 2017
This Soave shows great finesse and aromatic complexity with fine white floral aromas, peach and apricot notes and a hint of spicy minerality. Harmoniously balanced on the palate, the richly textured fruit flavours lead to a long and elegant finish.
A careful selection of the grapes took place in the vineyard. The grapes were gently pressed and the must was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. It went through full malolactic fermentation and was then aged for a period of 12 months. 50% of the wine was matured in seasoned 22 hectolitre Slovenian oak casks and 50% in concrete vats.
Roccolo Grassi was established in 1996 by Bruno Sartori and his two children Francesca and Marco. Based in Veneto, they produce wines of unique character and strong personality, which are expressive of their origins. Winemaker Marco Sartori is one of hottest talents in the region. His philosophy is very simple; yields in the vineyard are significantly reduced to obtain a fabulous fruit concentration. The 14 hectares of vines are farmed sustainably and minimal intervention takes place in the winery. The result is a collection of world class wines distinguished by their pure elegance.
