2012 Fattori Soave Motto Piane – 92 pts
A Garganega Dry White Table wine from
Italy, Terrossa di RoncĂ , Soave, Veneto, Italy

An exceptional wine made from volcanic soils, the 2012 Soave Motto Piane opens to a deep golden color and thick intensity. The bouquet explodes with honey, candied fruit, almond marzipan and dried herbs. The wine is particularly rewarding to the palate where it delivers creamy richness and a very long, luscious finish. It has the structure to pair with white meats or creamy pasta dishes. Grapes are harvested the second week of September and dried on straw mats for one month before pressing.
