Soave Superiore DOCG Il Casale 2018
Balanced, Complex Bouquet, Elegant, White Flowers
Azienda Agricola Vicentini
An outstanding Soave where the natural clean acidity and freshness is still present. Green fruit and citrus aromas, delicately smoky and saline, with an intense long finish.
The old vines and late picking bring out the latent richness of the grape and an oak ageing to round out this full fleshy wine.
Food Match: Excellent with nourishing first courses and grilled meats.
This vintage too has been awarded 3 bicchieri by Gambero Rosso, following on from the 2013, 2014, 2015 vintages, as shown on the producers page. A truly outstanding wine!
Jancis Robinson has recognised the outstanding quality of Il Casale in her Wine of the Week in March 2016 and giving it a 17.5 Pts: "Pale straw. Strongly saline and smoky. Green fruits and citrus, very tight and crisp with a strong saline finish. Really crisp and smoky but chalky too, there’s friction but not grain. Fabulous intensity and length".
