Adalia Soave DOC 2018 ‘Singan’

The Adalia Soave is from the legendary Marinella Camerani stable, in Italy’s Veneto.  The vineyards are in the Val di Mezzane, where Valpolicella overlaps with Soave.

The wine is made with Garganega (the Soave grape), blended with Trebbiano di Soave and Chardonnay.

Adalia LogoAdalia is Marinella’s second label.   Adalia wines benefit from all of the experience and technical ability of this very important winery, but because they are planted on less favourable sites, they are lighter and fresher in style, and offer exceptional value for money.

Adalia’s Soave is a great wine for summer parties and dining al fresco. It is currently offered with a very special case price:

  • 6 for £70 (instead of £85)
  • 12 for £130 (instead of £165)

£15.45£130.00

  • Description

    Adalia Soave DOC is the second label of Corte Sant’Alda. You can learn a little bit about Adalia here.

    The Adalia holdings are in the Val di Mezzane. That is to say, in the eastern part of Valpolicella, where it overlaps with Soave.

    As a second label, these wines are made to be light, fruity and accessible.  The winemaker achieves this by using fruit from vines on less favourable plots.  Some, for example, may not have the most perfect exposition to the sun, while others grow more exposed to the wind, and so on.

    These constraints point to a lower price point, a deliberate choice on the part of the winery. However, the skill and experience of the winemaker is just as important to maintain quality.  This is apparent on tasting.  There is a lovely structural balance in the wine, which supports delicate citrus and almond flavours.

    In short, the Adalia Soave is a very good quality wine, and impressive value for money.
