It’s time for yet another Soave (SWAH-vey) review. This one comes from Si Soave and they get the award for “best bottle.” Seriously, this bottle is the best I’ve seen since tasting the Travaglini Gattinara… and notice that both are Italian wines. In addition to being an interesting looking bottle, it’s also really comfortable to hold and pour with this bottle… it’s just very well balanced and I might be OK with all bottles adopting this design. If for no other reason than the cool bottle, I don’t think Si will have a hard time selling this wine. But the wine is good too.
But while I love the Si Soave bottle, I have to curse them for the auto-play music and pointless use of Flash on the Si Soave website. They are not alone though… way too many wine brands put out god-awful websites with Flash and music… WHY??!!!!!
I really like the nose on this wine. It’s slightly floral, with honeydew melon, lime, and mineral. The palate is refreshing with light green apple, pear and honeydew melon flavors. The acidity is OK, but I would like a touch more. It finishes dry and minerally, with a lime aftertaste.
