"Shows green mango with lime and wet stone. Full and fresh with a persistent finish. Oily and rich. Ripe wine. Beautiful. A big wine but fresh at the same time. Drink now.

"This enticingly fragrant wine offers scents of white spring flower, apple, ginger and flint. On the elegantly structured palate, radiant acidity underscores crisp apple, Bosc pear, white peach and lemon drop, while a salty mineral note closes the tangy finish. It's an impressive effort for what was overall a washout vintage. Drink through 2024."
Wine Advocate 91
"The 2014 Soave Classico la Froscà is a delightful expression of Garganega, a white grape from volcanic soils that shows its immense potential in this oak-fermented white. Despite the low expectations of the vintage, this Soave Classico offers full and balanced fruit maturity with bright aromas of apricot, summer peach, honey-roasted almond and crushed oyster shell. The heavier and fruitier parts of the wine are beautifully balanced against its mineral and ethereal side."
The historical Froscà cru, planted in 1955, is a 6ha plot planted in calcareous and tuffaceous (volcanic) soils, which impart a character that is completely unique to this bottling. The juice goes through a soft pressing and immediate cooling of the must. Alcoholic fermentation and aging (on the lees) takes place in both stainless steel and small oak casks (228 L). 1666 cases produced.
a cut above - Soave is not usually a wine to wax wildly enthusiastic over but the Gini Soave Frosca, which is a step up from their standard Soave is a truly lovely wine - and it's organically grown which is important to me.
