Monte Carbonare Soave Classico DOC
Having the Monte Carbonare Soave Classico DOC of Suavia winery in your glass is like "having a piece of soil in the glass" ... in the finest sense, of course! It is so. In Monte Carbonare vineyard, vines are rooted in a deep black soil, pure volcano. The result is a wine with a strong personality: authentic and true, with sharp minerality. It is like the rain falling on the pavement, on blacks stones of dry walls,or like that good smell of the campaigns, touching the water first. Made from 100% Garganega, the grapes are harvested by hand and subjected to soft pressing. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in steel for about 16 days at 14-16 °C. The wine does not undergo a malolactic fermentation and matures for 15 months in contact with fine lees in stainless steel tanks, then refines five months in the bottle.
Monte Carbonare has a straw yellow with brilliant highlights. It shows yellow flowers, exotic fruit and white peach together with smoky and peaty notes. On the palate, it is fruity, with mineral, aromatic herbs and almond alongside crisp acidity in the background. The finish is dry and very persistent. We suggest to serve it at 11-13 °C.

The history of Suavia consists of a castle, no frog, few princes and lots of princesses. The castle is the one in Soave: a heritage from the Middle Ages, when the town was still called by the old name of Suavia; Giovanni and Rosetta’s four daughters, however, have been the main female characters in this story since the start of the twenty-first century. Today Meri, Valentina and I (Alessandra) run the winery here in Fittà, where it all started.
