2017 Fattori Runcaris Soave Classico
This particular cuvée, Rucaris, is made from 25 year old sustainably-farmed vineyards, planted at high density in the hillsides surrounding the winery. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and includes a small percentage of late harvest grapes in order to add more floral spice. When handled correctly, Garganega produces a wine with a slightly waxy, oily character, one that verges on buttery richness. Chilled properly, the wine is a faithful servant at the dinner table, pairing nicely with delicate preparations, like the black cod, creamy polenta and sautéed chard.
