Garganega

Garganega             

Garganega is a white grape variety grown widely in the Veneto region of North East Italy where it is most famous for the production of Soave.

Corte Mainente, Recioto di Soave, Luna Nova, 2018, Half

This Recioto di Soave is made from bunches of a selection of the first picked - for the best condition and good levels of acidity - grapes of Garganega, dried on racks in the autumn to concentrate the sweetness.

There's more than a hint of botrytis, noble rot, too. Now-2023

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
