Wine Spectator 2017 Top 100 Wine
Gini is one of the producers smack in the original hills of Soave, which are now designated as DOC Soave Classico, that have guarded the reputation of the region by continuing to produce wholly authentic, focused, and complex wines from the Monteforte d’Alpone hills. These producers are few, but they are fantastic. The Gini family has grown grapes in the Soave Classico zone since the 1600s.
This 100% Garganega hails from a selection of prized hillside vineyards, with vines averaging 70 years of age—delivering old-vine intensity unmatched in the area. But that’s no surprise from Gini—the family has grown grapes since the 1600s! It is this level of quality that put Soave on the map in the first place. But don’t just take it from us—the 2016 Gini Soave Classico was named in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines 2017.
The Perfect Summer Foodie Wine | Soave Classico
Surely there are no better food wines than the wines from Italy. Italian white wines are prized for being typically bone-dry, with crisp acidity, exciting freshness. And almost always made in an unoaked style. The Garganega variety in the Gini Soave Classico lends attractive aromas of citrus, chamomile, herbs, and raw almond.
Soave Classico region allows for up to 30 percent of other varieties. But the Gini Soave Classico 2016 is a pure expression of Soave’s native Garganega. While grown organically across Gini’s “Cru” vineyards in the hills. Rather a mouthwatering representation, dry and without any oak. In addition, for pouring at backyard or rooftop summer gatherings. Pair this with seafood right off the BBQ dressed simply in olive oil and lemon. Or enjoy with grilled pizza, chicken salad, or paired with crunchy fritto misto.
