Less than 1.5 hectares of Roccolo Grassi is dedicated to Gargenega and the La Broia vineyard has a higher concentration of limestone. The wine is aged half in botti (and this goes through malo) and half in concrete, for twelve months and thern a further eight in the bottle. Classic Soave notes of white flowers, peach and apple, the palate fresh and lively. The combination of cement and wood and the extended ageing gives this wine extra dimension and texture.
The 2020 Soave La Broia wafts up with lemon oils, savory herbal tones and a hint of wet stone. It's silky and pliant with a balanced inner sweetness, offset by a reverberation of salty tension, as green-citrus and tart orchard fruits dazzle the senses. This tapers off dry with a twang of sour citrus and a salty flourish. The 2020 is so youthfully tense and packed full of potential. 90 points, Eric Guido - Vinous.
