Home Wine Regions Italian Wine Cantina del Castello Soave Classico

Tonight we’re tasting another Soave, this time it’s one with the Classico DOC designation produced by Cantina del Castello.  This winery, which translated means “Castle Vineyard,” lies just below Scaligeri Castle in Soave.  A beautiful and regal location.

This wine is produced from 90% Garganega and 10% Trebbiano di Soave.  This wine has not seen any oak, but was aged in stainless steel tanks before bottling.

So, upon tasting this wine, I have a question: Who put a banana in my wine?  Seriously, there is a banana aroma on this wine. It also has a bit of butterscotch, pear, a touch of petrol and really soft orange blossom. The palate is pure pear and yellow delicious apple flavors.  There’s a little bit of lemon on the finish.  It’s a nice wine, good for delicately flavored foods, like white fish and mild cheeses.
