Nardello, Soave Classico (Veneto, Italy) 2016

($14): Nardello is one of the producers changing the image of Soave. A key to finding top quality Soave is to look for those, such as this one, that comes from the Classico subregion. Fortunately for consumers the price of Soave from these top producers has not caught up to the quality. Nardello’s 2016, made from grapes grown in a number of vineyards in the Classico area, is crisp and clean with good concentration.  A citrus quality and minerality in the finish keeps you coming back for another sip.  It’s zippy enough to stand up to antipasto and simple seafood.
