2014Pra2014 Pra, Soave Classico DOC “Otto” Veneto, Italy.
Made from mostly Garganega the Pra Soave is a crisp and gentile white of fine character and class, with subtle fruit and good detail and length, this in fact is one of the top whites from the Veneto and is a wonderful summer and or sea food wine. The 2014 is aromatic and poised with fresh acidity and cool mineral tones, it certainly pairs with clams, mussels and creamy cheeses, the profile here is delicacy and balance with lemon/lime, white peach and summer melon along with a hint of dandelion, wet stones, clay dust and basil with a touch of sea shells. Everything feels brisk and alive with a light bodied mouth feel, but with underlying depth, this is a pretty wine that does everything you ask of it, it has a nice steely charm and it pleases easily, solid effort again for Pra, proving it’s reputation for quality and style in Soave, drink from 2015 to 2018.
