A beautiful Soave that's a step up in richness from the La Cappellina. A gentle richness of honeycomb and tree fruits is expressed in beautiful harmony and delicacy. A refined yet vibrant Soave from the best fruit of a classy producer, the Recorbian is delicious.

Its Origins

On the east side of Soave is the village of Terrossa, where the Franchetto family has lived for over a century. Antonio Franchetto continues his family’s long history of cultivating the traditional grapes of these lands: Garganega (used for this wine) and Pinot Grigio. Now his daughter is also at the helm bringing new vision to this quality focused winery.

Winemaker notes

"From the best Garganega grapes – late harvested-, wisely cultivated by Antonio Franchetto, is born Recorbian. It is straw yellow with golden highlights, and on the nose it is delicate and fascinating. Its softness is well balanced by freshness and sapidity, typical characteristics that emerge directly from our soil. The good persistence and the elegant pleasantness are witnesses of a strong and intriguing body that you will discover sip after sip. -- Excellent with first courses such as risotto and pasta al forno with vegetables. Well paired with white meat main courses and not too elaborated red meat dishes. It is also well paired with spicy meats such as the soppressa veneta. In addition, it is well paired with semi-matured cheese varieties such as the Monte Veronese DOP mezzano."
