A fine and poised wine with nutty, leesy characters on the nose and citrus notes. The palate is structured and refreshing with citrus zing balanced by some weight and a focused finish.
This 20 hectare estate in the commune of Monteforte D'Alpone in the very heart of the Soave Classico district is run by brothers Sergio and Graziano Pra. A long-standing, working tradition of the vineyards, handed down through the generations has made Sergio an expert in vine growing systems. Winemaker Graziano does a fantastic job of producing authentic, top class Soave.
Universally regarded as one of a handful of world-class producers in Soave who have revitalised the region, Pra's 5 wines, all based on Garganega, cover 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 latest release, the intense, incisive, unoaked 'Staforte' takes the range to new heights but for us the most impressive achievement is the delicious 'basic' Soave.
