Pra Soave Otto

£12.95

Pra Soave Otto
Pra Soave Otto is a classic Soave from one of the region’s leading producers. Honeysuckle and pear aromas, the fruit character is balanced by almonds and a crisp, mineral finish.

This 20 hectare estate in the commune of Monteforte D’Alpone in the very heart of the Soave Classico district is run by Graziano Pra. Universally regarded as one of a handful of world-class producers in Soave who have revitalised the region, Pra produce 5 wines based on Garganega, covering a wide spectrum of styles and flavours. The most celebrated is the opulent Monte Grande, awarded ‘Tre Bicchieri’ 5 years in a row. Arguably the intense, incisive, unoaked ‘Staforte’ takes the range to new heights but for us the most impressive achievement is the delicious ‘basic’ Soave Classico, described in the 2007 Gambero Rosso guide as ‘an absolutely magnificent wine of which every wine enthusiast should have a few bottles tucked away’. In 2006
Graziano produced his first red wine from the Morandina vineyard in eastern Valpolicella, in the foothills of Monte Lessini. The Valpolicella was soon followed by an Amarone. The vineyard, 450 m above sea level, had never previously been cultivated – and is not treated with any chemicals.
