Corte Mainente, Netrroir, Soave, 2018
As it's made from a selection of Davide's best grapes across all his vineyard sites, Netrroir is only labelled as a Soave rather than a Soave Classico. The grapes are picked late for full maturity, and the wine is left on its fine lees for a year to develop complexity. Very ripe and concentrated, with such intensity of stone fruit that it tastes almost like Viognier, and it also evinces ripe melon notes. Powerful and lightly savoury: a wine for white meat - chicken or veal dishes. Now-2021
In 2019 we found a winner to work with in Soave in the shape of young Davide Mainente. His family own 12 hectares of vines, both near the town (the Cengelle vineyard) and in the Classico hillside sites such as Pigno and Tenda. His wines are winning rave reviews in Italy and here from the UK press and our customers alike. Thanks to his wish to build his sales in this country with us, they remain extremely good value.
Soave, based on the Garganega grape grown in vineyards east ofVerona, is hugely under-rated here. It's one of those wines (like Muscadet) that the supermarket buyers murdered twenty years ago, pushing the co-ops to produce so much volume from the pergola-trained (and irrigated) vines that the end result became mean and watery, albeit cheap. But true Soave, from top growers such Pieropan, Anselmi and Inama is such a delight - and Davide at Corte Mainente is challenging these luminaries.
