Filippi Soave Classico 'Castelcerino' 2017
The wine is a clear, bright golden colour. Lean, fresh and minerally, it’s just how Soave should be. Lemon and musk on the front of the palate carry nicely to a long minerally, almost buttery finish. Very different to the Pieropan, it’s leaner and more savoury - kind of like a Riesling meeting a Chablis. All the while its precise sherbet-like acidity gives the wine great balance and length. It feels good in the mouth, and and doesn’t intrude or overpower - making this crisp and elegant wine so enjoyable. No overt fruit and alcohol here. Beautifully balanced, a pleasure drink on its own or over a long leisurely lunch.
