SOAVE CLASSICO BALESTRI VALDA
'LUNALONGA'

MONTE CARNIGA, SENGIALTA, VERONA, ITALY

80% GARGANEGA
20% TREBBIANO SOAVE

A deliciously delicate Soave, quite unlike the more commercially produced wines. The estate is run by the Rizzotto family and the wines have refined excellence defining their quality. In the first half of October hand-picked grapes are pressed and then kept in oak barrels after partial malolectic fermentation. It is then transferred to steel tanks, and laid down for six months after bottling. This is a true expression of style with a pale, ethereal colour, and freshly acidic notes of crisp, Golden Delicious apple. Match with goat's cheeses and harder cheeses like Altobut and San Andrea.
