Today’s wine is the Inama Soave Classico 2007 . Soave is a region in Northeastern Italy, just outside of Venice. It’s also a region that has been expanded beyond its traditional borders because of business pressures put upon the regulator by wineries on its border. Those wines outside the traditional zone, well, frankly, they suck. Wines within the traditional zone are called Soave Classico. This is just such a wine, and it tastes very very good. We’re talking minerals, citrus and good weight or density – this is the sort of wine you FEEL in your mouth while also one that doesn’t throw a wrecking ball across your palate. It’s also quite complex for the price. A perfect alternative to what you normally drink on hot summer days. If work has been keeping you as busy as me, then you deserve (need?) a good bottle. Grab some for the inevitable good weather.
$30 at Kitsilano Wine Cellar
