Inama Soave Classico 2008

Inama makes some wonderful wines in the Veneto region of Italy and this is a nice, reasonably priced addition that makes a fun summer drink. All of the Soaves are 100% Garganega which when given the proper treatment can produce light wines with hints of wild flowers, lemon curd and nuts. This crisp Italian white has a nose loaded with wild flowers, lemon zest and flinty minerals. The wine is medium/(-) bodied, nice acidity, and a palate that demonstrates hints of stone fruits, citrus and lovely Old World minerality on a pretty long finish. A delightful alternative to the usual summer selections.
