The place where this wine is born is of rare beauty, a medieval village transformed into a winery that enjoys a unique landscape: a green terrace, over the hills, overlooking the Soave Castle. An ancient Villa, a botanical park, the winery, the experimental vineyards are the Rocca Sveva’s driving force: a winery which has developed over time a culture of wine handed down through quality work. The typicality of the territory today is represented by the memory and future labels of Rocca Sveva. Soave Castelcerino means uniqueness, unrivaled to the advantage of that Garganega which turns out to be fresh, complex, harmonious, long-lived. A contemporary vine that allows itself to be interpreted in different ways and is consecrated as one of the most interesting white wines on the wine scene. The hilly area of reference rests on calcareous soils and subsoils, increasing its aromas, finesse and structure.
The signature of Castelcerino Soave 2020 is defined by an expressiveness that gives a broad nose of flowers and fruit, the olfactory richness of green apple, yellow peach, a touch of sage and alpine herbs. The crunchy, savory and persistent palate is combined with a strong verticality that determines its great drinkability.
We suggest pairing with cod alla vicentina, served cool at a temperature of 10 degrees. We really liked the unusual combination with oysters and snails.
In the shadow of the majestic medieval Castello di Soave, right up against the castle’s ancient walls, lies Rocca Sveva, a hamlet built in the Middle Ages transformed into a prestigious centre of wine culture. With its picturesque cellars, ancient villa, flourishing botanical garden, and experimental vineyard, represents a unique tribute to wine culture, boasting an extraordinary amalgam of history, tradition, and quality. Today, it is the home of the Rocca Sveva wines, a limited-production of Verona’s winemaking tradition that includes our Soave Classico “Castelcerino”.
