2022 Le Battistelle Montesei Soave Classico
This wine comes from a blend of small south-facing vineyards in the Soave Classico area, from vines predominately between 70 & 90 years old. As with all the wines the grapes are farmed on steep terrace vineyards using Pergola’s, the traditional method of farming in Soave Classico. The soil type of the Montesei vineyard sites are a mix of porous volcanic rocks, lined with clay and silt.
The grapes specific to Montesei are always picked first due to the warmer south facing exposition of these sites. Hand picked, pressed and fermented in tank. No malolactic. Left on fine lees for 3 to 4 months. Of the three bottlings from Le Batistelle it’s the most instantly appealing, soft fruits with white floral notes but always the classic bitter almond style of Soave.
