WINERY: Corte Sant’Alda
REGION: Veneto
GRAPE: Garganega 80%, Trebbiano di Soave 15%, Chardonnay 5%

WINEMAKER NOTES: Corte Sant’Alda Soave is produced from the second-oldest vineyard on the estate. Planted in 1988 it is a mere 1.6ha and accounts for only 1,000 cases per year. It is a divine Soave with a modern twist, all while being totally biodynamically grown and produced.

TASTING NOTES: Aromas of stone fruit and citrus zest, finishing on a dusty chalk minerality. The lively palate reflects the nose, evoking mature apple and tangy nectarine, while a pleasant bitter almond note drives the finish. A great example of how fruit and minerality each play their part in Soave.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Rich seafood pasta dishes, fritto misto, hot fish appetizers, shellfish, and lean fish.

Marinella Camerani is a woman ahead of her time. In the mid-1980s when she took over the family vineyard holdings and decided to begin farming and producing organically, her Venetian industry counterparts were flabbergasted.  Still today the Venetian old guard shuns this idea of organic production, leaving Marinella and a handful of others as the only Biodynamic certified farms producing DOCG wines in the Veneto.
