There was a time when "soave" could be translated as "cheap but thin and mediocre Italian white wine." This exceptional, powerful soave from Inama shows how much can change when a grower makes the sacrifices in quantity necessary to make strides in quality. A fully dry wine, the Inama is dominated by mineral flavors that truly reflect the vineyards in which it was grown. Nuances of lime, peach and nuts add complexity. Serve in place of chardonnay and savor the difference in character.
