Suavia Soave Classico 2007
Wine SpectatorLots of lemon, white peach and mineral character, with hints of orange peel and dry almond. Medium-bodied, with good acidity and a crisp finish, leaving a lingering citrus aftertaste. Racy, nervy and delicious. Minerally, almost flinty. Drink now. 6,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastRun by an exciting all-female team, Soave Classico Le Rive opens with a rich, opulent style that has obviously benefitted from careful oak aging. There are deep layers here of candied fruit, honeysuckle and dried sage.
Wine AdvocateSuavia's 2007 Soave Classico shows the complexity and character of this hillside site in its ripe yellow fruits, smoke, earthiness and minerals. The wine was very closed and reticent at the outset so I recommend opening it 30 minutes before serving to give it some air. Alternatively a quick double-decant should do the trick. This is a generous, full-bodied style of Soave that is sure to find many fans. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.
