Radiant and loaded with finesse, this stunning white opens with enticing scents of fragrant spring flower, acacia, white stone fruit and wild herb. The round, elegant palate is focused, precise and energetic, delivering peach, Bartlett pear, ginger and tangerine drop candy alongside bright acidity. It closes on a tangy mineral note evoking crushed oyster shell. A gorgeous wine. Drink through 2028.

The 2016 Soave Classico La Froscà is rich and alluring with notes of dried peach, sweet white flowers and honeyed almonds. It displays wonderful clarity and poise while stimulating the senses with bright acids and minerals before settling on ripe orchard fruits. A twang of sour citrus and apricot resonates throughout the long and almost salty finish. I tasted the 2016 over the course of two days and it only got better each time I revisited it. The La Froscà matures in a combination of 80% steel tanks and 20% barriques, yet there’s not a hint of wood here.
