Inama 2014 Soave Classico
In the 1960s, Giuseppe Inama, the estate’s founder, began using his savings to purchase small plots of vineyards in the heart of the Soave Classico region. At that time few understood the area’s potential but Giuseppe believed that he could make a wine capable of restoring Soave’s reputation by working with only top quality vineyards of old-vine Garganega (Soave’s original grape). Today, Inama (pronounced “eeh-NAM-mah”) comprises 70 acres of vineyards in the heart of the Soave Classico and Giuseppe’s son Stefano, who assumed control of the winemaking in 1992 and has cutting-edge outlook, is considered a dynamic visionary of the region. Inama also grows traditional Bordeaux varietals on 60 acres in the Colli Berici, Italy’s oldest DOC for Cabernet and Merlot grapes.
Made with 100% Garganega grapes, the wine shows a light yellow color, with rich stone fruit, citrus and floral aromas. On the palate the wine displays flavors of apple, lemon and bits of pineapple wrapped up in vivid acidity on a lingering ending. The finish has minerality that shows up gently. Very nice, great value.
