Contra Soarda Breganze Vespaiolo - 750 Milliliters

$25.19 each

Tasting Notes: The nose is quite effusive with scents of apple blossom, white peach, orchard fruit, and ripe citrus. Fairly full on the palate with a rich texture, the initial flavors of juicy apple and peach give the impression of sweetness which is lifted away by high acidity and a mineral finish. Fresh and lively; a natural pairing for higher fat/ oilier foods.

Estate History: Mirco and Gloria Gottardi established Contra’ Soarda in 2002 with the desire to create a deeper tie to their native land. Contra’ Soarda, which means “hamlet on the slope” grows vines and olive trees with utmost respect for the environment. The 12 hectares of vineyards lie just outside of the picturesque town of Bassano del Grappa which sits at the mouth of the Valsugana that with its imposing mountains provides strong thermal excursions between night and day. The vines are densely planted to insure naturally low yields. The cellar, built inside the hill to minimize any environmental impact, is an architectural wonder and recipient of many prizes. The soil is of volcanic composition. Focusing on the often overlooked native grape, Vespaiolo, but not neglecting the varietals that have been planted in his region for centuries, Mirco produces wines that are pure, elegant and harmonious.
