PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Veneto winemaking icon Roberto Anselmi strove to make some truly original juice that differed from the classic garganega-based wines made under the guidelines of the Soave DOC. He believed that the laws governing the production of Soave wines were too restrictive and that whatever he lost by giving up DOC status he would get back in spades by forging his own course. So, he eschewed the rules, employing growing and pruning techniques to lower yields and temperature-controlled vinification to improve the quality of the finished wines.

The 2017 Capitel Croce Bianco is a mono-varietal (100% garganega) sourced from the Capitel Croce Vineyard in the Monteforte area of the Veneto. The 5-hectare vineyard has a southern exposure and limestone-heavy soil. The wine was fermented and aged “sur-lie” for 8 months in seasoned oak barrels. It has a nose of wet stone, peaches, apricots, and hints of almonds. The palate is round and generous, with lemon zest, peaches, and ginger taking center stage. That wet stone reemerges here as a supporting player along with the merest hint of honey. Vibrant acidity keeps things lively. Check out the press!

91 points, Wine Spectator:
"A fine, minerally underpinning runs through this racy, light-bodied white. Hints of lemon pith and tarragon accent the white peach and flint flavors. Well-knit, showing verve throughout. Garganega. Drink now through 2024. 3,333 cases made." (5/31/19)
