SOAVE CLASSIC 2019 doc BIO
The. Agr. GINI SANDRO and CLAUDIO
I Gini: family of winemakers since 1500 so much so that studies have brought to light that in Contrada Salvarenza, this family already owned some vineyards. The knowledge has been handed down for generations to Olinto Gini, born in early 900 and father of Sandro, Claudio, Martha who today carry on this age-old tradition. Olinto farmer and winemaker with an imposing build as much as his passion for the land and the life it gave him, he had huge hands, thick and worn out from work on his land and his vines. Sometimes I wonder how it was possible that so strong and "bulky" limbs could treat a fragile fruit like grapes with so much care. He loved and cared for his lands with tradition and innovation by working in harmony with nature: were the first in 1985, and it has always been like that ever since, to vinify without the use of sulfur dioxide. This, has in fact revolutionized the world of oenology by opening up to all new possibilities and visions in the world of wine production. Both in their vineyards and in the cellar, the idea of not using any kind of chemical support has changed what to do and when: "Now our most important task", as Sandro says,”Is to make the screws talk, the grapes and knowing how to listen to them ". Biological and Biodynamic always.
The Soave Classico doc di Gini is the historical / production reference point of the company as it is, obviously, the oldest product and which has made a milestone in the history of these winemakers. It is produced from the assembly of only Garganega grapes grown exclusively on the hills of Monforte. Even a part of the Contrada Salvarenza and Froscà grapes is used in the vinification of this Doc which it therefore expresses, in small, what the land and the centuries-old vines of this company can tell us: the exposure and altitude are optimal, the soils vary from volcanic tuff to limestone / clay and the uniqueness of the grapes make this DOC Classico, a white with a very high quality / price ratio. In the glass it is bright straw yellow with light greenish reflections; on the nose it expresses an intense bouquet that ranges from citrus to floral notes, like grapefruit and hawthorn, with white pepper and final sensations of almond. On the palate it is harmonious, fine and persistent, with a roundness given by the scent of ripe almond and with a delicate and distinctly mineral finish. This suave fully expresses the history of this family and the Veronese territories with a unique freshness and a rare richness in wines that can potentially be enjoyed on a daily basis..
