Founded in 1960 by Giuseppe Inama, this 74 acre estate is located in Monte Foscarino, the heart of the Soave Classico region in Italy. Each vineyard imparts a unique element to the blend; the volcanic soil of Classico lends floral aromas and minerality, and the soils found in Colli Berici contribute depth and structure. The terra rossa soil of this sub-appellation are particularly well suited to growing Bordeaux blends and was the first region in Italy to plant Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carmenere. In 1992, Giuseppe handed the reins to his son Stefano who carries on his father’s legacy of minimalist intervention in the vineyards and in the cellar. The grapes are hand-picked and briefly macerated on their skins. After a gentle pressing, the musts are naturally cold settled. In order to preserve the aromas and varietal flavors, the wines are bottled with minimal fining or filtration. “We are organic in the way we grow wines, but don’t declare it”, says Stefano. “It is not a marketing tool: the quality of the wine is the marketing tool.”

Creamy and rich, the 2011 Soave Classico Vigneto du Lot is so beautifully expressive and profound. There’s nothing obvious about this remarkable wine. Its aromatic evolution spans from crushed mineral and pencil shaving to lemon curd, vanilla custard and sun-kissed apricot. This is a Soave Classico dressed in its Sunday best. It sees six months of oak, of which 20% is new. Those two-fold veins of acidity and minerality will help it age. Drink 2013-2019.

Aromatic, with ground spice and orchard blossom, this meshes refined acidity with subtle flavors of white peach, chamomile and blanched almond. An underlying note of saline minerality pushes through on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,100 cases made. –AN
