Garganega

Garganega is one of the most underrated white grapes on the planet although it is also one of the most widely planted white grapes in Italy. Garganega grapes in the Veneto region are blended with Soave and Gambellara. Garganega is also blended with Trebbiano di Soave. Garganega, pronounced gahr-gah-HEH-gah, grape is not as popular as the Sangionvese grape and is often blended with Chardonnay. The late-ripening Garganega is well suited for sweet and luscious appassimento wines.  Like Chardonnay, Garganega reflects the environment. When it is grown in a cooler climate, Garganega exhibits apple like characteristics that are reminiscent of Chablis, also exhibiting good structure that is derived from its well-defined acidity. Warmer regions produce Garganega with stone fruit, citrus flavors, and delicate expression. These characteristics can be softened if the vines are allowed to follow their natural inclination. This also allows the grapes to yield heavily. When produced in the appassimento style, Garganega grapes are richly textured with tropical fruits, exotic spices and honey that is combined with a backbone of citrus flavors and aromas. Garganega wines pair well with seafood, white meat, and risotto. The sometimes almond flavors and vibrant fruit quality also make it a delicious wine to enjoy before a meal.

Review:

Brilliant emerald straw color. Aromas and flavors of brazil nuts, creme fraiche, and kiwi and starfruit with a silky, lively, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and an effortless, engaging, medium-length watermelon, yellow apple, and clementine finish. A delicious, artfully balanced soave with a great range of fruit flavors. 91 Point Beverage Tasting Institue
