Fasoli Gino DOC Soave Pieve Vecchia

Veneto, Italy
Fasoli Gino - 2012
Product Code: CII11
Grape: Garganega
Size: 75cl
Alcohol: 14.5%

Has won a fistful of gold medals over the years and remains one our favourites. Pieve Vecchia is made from some of the estate's finest Garganega grapes which are aged in oak. It's a full-bodied, creamy wine that nonetheless retains a lovely freshness which is secured by using the best quality fruit.


 

Fasoli Gino

Fasoli Gino turned to organic viticulture in 1980 and since 1984 all of their land has been farmed organically. The nature of the land (partly clay and partly a mix of stones and sand), and the favourable microclimate (the wide and sunny valley, protected from the north by the Lessini mountains) make the area particularly suitable for vine growing. Currently the estate is cultivating 14 hectares of vineyards divided into seven parts: Casétta, Cassòla, Creàri, Pessétta, Perantònie, Orgno and Sànde. The type of land varies from one vineyard to the other, which has helped determine which varietals should be planted. In the clay soil there are 30–40 year old garganega vines, traditionally used for Soave wine. Where the soil is stony and sandy, some clones of chardonnay, merlot and pinot noir have been planted. The meticulous viticultural practices include: grass grown under the vines; manuring with bovine dung; balanced pruning to guarantee a low yield; parasite control using natural products and predators, and hand picking done at different times to select grapes at their optimum ripening point. The vinification is carried out with the use of modern technology whilst respecting the criteria of organic production.

Delicious Review by Helen

This was slightly whiskey flavour, delicious as a desert wine or just enjoy on it's own. (Posted on 26/11/2014)

Brilliant, mellow butterscotch and gentle oak. A must for the drinkers of Burgundy and white Rioja. (Posted on 26/11/2014)
