Wine Tenuta di Corte Giacobbe, Soave, 2019
White - Soave has a reputation for being rather exotic while offering good acidity, minerality, and liveness.
On the nose, aromas of ripe melon, citrus, jasmine and chamomile with herbal and mineral notes. Appealing and well-balanced on the palate, with lingering, aromatic melon and citrus that push through to a crisp finish hinting of dried almond. It displays a vibrant vein of minerality.
Ideal served by itself as an aperitif wine, and delicious partnered with first courses, lighter meats, fish, and vegetables. A fantastic wine to enjoy with friends looking to try something different. Enjoy with spring vegetables, and fresh white fish for an elegant dinner.
