Inama Vin Soave

Inama "Vin Soave"
Garganega - 2009
Verona, Italy

First of all, I have never even heard of the varietal garganega, I mean really, it sounds like a venereal disease, and not the good kind (ahem, Jordan).

However, this "smooth wine" is quite good! A very light color, like watered down ginger ale and a light citrusy nose. The wine drinks very crisp with a light apple finish. As it warms a slightly oaky vanilla taste lingers at the finish blending nicely with the not-quite-honey woody sweetness when it is colder. Like a smoother, softer chardonnay or more involved pinot blanc.

Excellent all purpose, smooth, drink alone white. I like it best very cold.
