Pra Soave 2013 has a fresh, flowery and subtly tropical nose with a touch of wood smoke. The palate is attractively textured and juicy, showing zesty leesy intensity and a hint of almonds. Richly-flavoured and concentrated with a crisp, incisive and mineral finish. The twenty hectare estate is in the commune of Monteforte D'Alpone which is in the heart of the Soave Classico district and is run by Graziano Pra who is also the chief winemaker. He is universally regarded as one of only a handful of world class producers in Soave who have revitalised the region. The grapes are grown on Pra's 14 hectare estate near the town of Monteforte d'Alpone in the Classico sub-zone. The vineyards are south facing and at 150 metres above sea level on volcanic soil. The vines are 25 - 30 years old. The grapes are softly pressed and fermented in stainless steel vats to ensure maximum fruit freshness. Maturation takes place in tank on the lees until bottling in February of the following year to give it more complexity and flavours.
