Soave Classico Staforte is made from 100% Garganega grapes, selected from the best sites of Pra’s Monteforte Estate, situated in the heart of the Soave Classico zone. The name of the wine refers to the fact that Monteforte used to be called ‘Staforte’ in The Middle Ages. The grapes are vinified and matured in stainless steel with 6-8 months lees ageing and regular battonage. This is a fine and poised wine with notes of ripe apples, candied peel and a touch of spice. The palate has a great texture and structure, with a taut mineral core, hints of stone fruit, savoury characters and a refreshing, long finish. Try with pan fried scallops, grilled fish and seafood.
The 2014 vintage has developed a slight protein haze – though still tastes superb.. hence the reduction in price. Grab a few while we still have some!
