Soave Superiore Pieve Vecchia, Fasoli Gino DOC
A sumptuous French oak-aged Soave in a deliciously soft but full style from the masterful Fasoli Gino team. There are nuances of apricot and almond which border on the aromatic and a pleasantly firm citrus edge. If ever there was a wine you need to try to be convinced about this is it. A regular showstopper at tastings, often with people who don't normally like Soave, and a firm favourite in this writers household..
