Steve's Pick The ultimate expression of Garganega. Ultra refreshing with lively acidity, wonderfully fresh aromatics and a finish that just lasts, and lasts, and lasts... This crisp, medium-bodied Italian white will give Chablis, Sancerres, and Muscadets a run for their money!
Rarely planted outside of Italy, Garganega is one of the country’s oldest and most widely enjoyed native varieties. It thrives in the Veneto region, namely in the area around Verona and Vicenza, and plays a starring role in the whites of Soave, Gambellara, and Custoza. Davide Vignato is spearheading organic, low-yield farming in the volcanic hills of Gambellara—Soave’s less-well-known neighbor—and turning out distinct and racy whites full of value and pleasure. Citrus, crushed stones, white flowers, almonds, and bracing acidity course through this Col Moenia, made with grapes from the domaine’s highest-elevation vines. This crisp, medium-bodied Italian white will give the Chablis, Sancerres, and Muscadets in your rotation of seafood and apéritif whites a run for their money!
