Since their first wine was released in 1983, Suavia has garnered an enviable
reputation near the top of the Soave tree in terms both of quality and value for
money. The vineyards are planted on deep, dark volcanic soils which are very
dark and deep in the Fittà and Tremenalto areas, and rich of basaltic stones in
the Castellaro zone. Some of these vineyards are very steep and the area itself
is all undulating hillsides and vertiginous terraced vineyards.
Enter Suavia's Soave Classico, golden yellow in colour, aromas of nashi pear
and jasmine flower, tropical notes too. Quite rich, creamy comes to mind, with a
mineral, rippling acidity to be had in the finish. All stainless steel
fermentation and maturation, with a few months spent on fine lees
post-fermentation and a fraction of the wine seeing malolactic conversion, means
that this wine keeps its assertive, varietal character.
