CORTE GIACOBBE - SOAVE DOC 2021
Straw yellow in colour with pale green highlights. The nose is multi-faceted with fragrances of ripe melon and orange, jasmine and chamomile, complemented by pungent rosemary and mountain grown hay.
Appealing and well balanced on the palate, with lingering aromatic melon and citrus that push through to a crisp finish hinting of dried almond. It displays a vibrant vein of minerality, gift of its valley terroir of origin.
ORIGIN Soave, Italy
MAKER Corte Giacobbe
PAIRING As an aperitif, delicious paired with first courses, lighter meats, fish and vegetables
The vineyards surrounding the ancient Corte Giacobbe are located on the slopes of two extinct volcanoes, Calvarina and Crocetta: soils generally of volcanic origin, composed of lava and tuff, rich in microelements.
In the estate's own vineyards, Garganega, Durella, Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio vines are cultivated under the careful care of the Dal Cero family.
The particular geological history characteristically influences the mineral and organic constitution of the berries, determining the strong aromatic and mineral characteristics of the grapes and the pleasant sapidity of the wine.
Specifically, Corte Giacobbe's Crus wines are the fruit of vineyards grown on the volcano's summit in soil characterised by high mineral content.
