Le Mandolare ‘Le Schiavette’ Recioto di Soave Classico DOCG 2008

Sweet Wine from Italy - Veneto
Review Date : 03-Oct-2012
100% Gargenega from the Schiavette' district near Castelcerino in Soave, fermented in barrique to 14.0% alc. Full, deep, golden-orange colour, bright and clear. The bouquet is softly full and densely packed with an opulent and decadent amalgam of apricot marmalade, citrus peel, nuts and crystallised fruits, the aromas very complex and multi-layered. Very sweet to taste, this is very soft and broad with layers of flavour packed with great concentration and density. Apricots, ripe citrus fruits, dried tropical fruits and nuts, exotic feijoa and persimmon with ginger and honey, are combined with caramel and raisins. The mouthfeel is extremely unctuous, but cutting, racy acidity provides sufficient energy, liveliness and drive, and guides the flavours to a lifted, aromatic finish. This is a densely concentrated and unctuous Recioto di Soave straw-wine with complex, exotic flavours. Serve with rich puddings and with blue cheeses over the next 6-10 years. (500 ml) 19.0/20 Oct 2012 RRP $78.00
