2018 Soave Classico D.O.C. ‘Bine Longhe’

$45.00

‘Bine Longhe’

This Soave Classico D.O.C. is a special, late harvest wine. ‘Bine Longhe’ is a luminous autumn straw colour, rich and brilliant due to the late October harvest, picked after the grapes have been over ripened for 20 days. Bine Longhe has a characteristically strong honeyed herbaceous aroma. Dancing minerality plays tag on your tongue, embracing and lively on the palate, with a slight aftertaste of bitter almonds.

See? We said it was a bit spesh.

Produced from Tessari’s best vineyards in the Costalta area (in the heart of Soave Classico D.O.C. region), Bine Longhe takes its name from a peculiarity of the vines: ‘Bine’ (the rows of vines) are more or less 300 meters long (‘Longhe’).

Description

The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

Soave Classico D.O.C. is loved for its inherent delicate nature, and the wonderful balance of acidity in ‘Bine Longhe’ makes it perfect to pair with many different varieties of food.

 

Herby pasta dishes like Pappardelle with Zucchini and Mint-Parsley Pesto make this wine sing, or even a simple fresh tuna salad with avocado is lovely. Well-made sausages and cheeses compliment the wine spectacularly.

 

The volcanic soils of the Tessari’s hillsides are rich with basaltic rocks and clays, which guarantees the health of the plant and the promotion of minerality and floral aroma that is characteristic of the Garganega grape.

 

This organic wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks for at least 12 months at controlled temperature. The long stay on lees and the batonnage facilitated the obtaining of a richer, longer and more harmonious wine, with a good balance between aromas and taste.

Bine Longhe with respect to its natural expression, preserves the quintessential characteristics of the hills of the Soave Classico D.O.C. Region.

 

Optimal Serving Temp: Chill to 12-14 Degrees Celsius

 

Drinking Age: Drink Now to 12 months.

 

The Winery

Tessari winery was founded in 1933 by Antonio Tessari. Now run by his grandchildren who all hold the Tessari name, this winery has attracted attention at the major wine shows such as Vinitaly, for their high quality wines, beautiful estate and dedicated care to their craft.

 

The winery is found in Monteforte d’Alpone, in volcanic and clayish angled hills and mountains of the Northern Italian region of Veneto.

 

In terms of winemaking,  it’s the high quality care and attention to their plants and production that set the Tessari apart in their region. The family carefully select the grapes, to ferment in absolute absence of sulphites, protecting grapes from oxidation using natural tannins not interfering with the grape characteristics: healthy grapes and high cleanliness prevent bacteria proliferation in the first phases of wine making.

 

The long stay on lees and the batonnage facilitates the extraction of the glutathione, one of the strongest antioxidants found in nature. They are therefore able to obtain wines that preserve the typicalness of their hills of Monteforte, respecting the natural expression of Soave Classico D.O.C.
