Fasoli Gino 'Pieve Vecchia' Soave Superiore
Italy, Veneto 75cl
This is a really interesting Soave, it's organic too. A late harvest wine at 14% and tasting like it's seen some oak. Not a typical Soave in any sense, It's much richer and was an excellent match to some spicy pork meatballs! Smells rich and shows some oak. Powerful and with lovely sweet apricot and peach fruit. It has a rich viscous flavour with some oak too. Despite it's concentrated almost sweet fruit it is dry. Long and a touch oily on the finish. This is very good wine and unlike many Soave! Not sure how much longer it will age, but delicious now.
