Beautifully mineral even on the sip, it is savoury and fresh but also elegant and creamy, with a dry and exceptionally persistent finish.
We always say that this wine “is like a bit of earth in a glass." And it’s true. In the monte Carbonare vineyard the vines sink their roots deep down into the black earth; pure volcano. This gives the wine personality: forthright and truthful, with a sharp mineral nature.
The castle is the one in Soave: a heritage from the Middle Ages, when the town was still called by the old name of Suavia; Giovanni and Rosetta’s daughters, however, have been the main female characters in this story since the start of the twenty-first century. Our family has been living and cultivating the land since the nineteenth century in Fittà: a small rural village mounted like a precious stone on the hills of Soave Classico.
The history of Suavia however began later, in 1982, when Giovanni and Rosetta (the father and mother), aware of the great potential of their area, decided to set up on their own and make their mark, crushing their grapes and making their own wine.
Today we three sisters, Meri, Valentina and Alessandra, carry on the family tradition and run the winery always working here in Fittà, where it all started.
Being aware of this, we can claim that our vineyard management is not a short-sighted one limited to the wellbeing of the vines alone, but it safeguards the landscape in its entirety.
The work carried out by man plays a very important role in the management of both the vineyard and the natural surrounding landscape, which is made up of elements that must be considered individually and duly taken care of in order to preserve the harmony created by their unity, i.e. that of nature itself.
Pairing Suggestions: All fish-based dishes since it is a wine that respects the delicacy of the fish's flesh and its salinity. It goes also very well with vegetable and truffle risottos. Excellent with medium ripened cow's milk cheeses.
Maturation: 15 months in contact with the fine sediments in steel vats and 5 months in the bottle
