Crushed flowers, sweet tobacco, mint and dried cherries grace the palate. Silky tannins provide the backdrop for this gentle, perfumed Valpolicella full of character and personality. Floral and savory notes reappear on the finish, adding lift and perfume. This is a lovely showing from Prà.
Located in the heart of the Soave Classico DOC near Verona, Cantine Pra is run by brothers Sergio and Graziano Pra, the former tending the estates 25 hectares of vineyards and the latter in charge of the cantine. The Pra range of wines are considered to be one of the benchmarks for the region including the Soave Classico, an un-oaked Soave Classico Superiore, Monte Grande, the barrique aged Soave Classico Colle Sant' Antonio and a stunning Recioto di Soave Classico. A producer that is totally in tune with their terroir and what the varieties Garganega and Trebbiano are capable of delivering in the glass.
