The Oddbins Take

Della Rocca: it sounds like a kind of Italian strongman doesn’t it? A muscle-clad, moustachioed hunk in silky red shorts, who could sing O Sole Mio whilst balancing on one toe and weightlifting a fir tree. The reality of this wine, however, is rather different: it’s the most delicate, nuanced little thing, but its greatness lies not in muscle-power or high alcohol (it’s just 11.5%), but in its subtle lemon, pear and acacia notes.

Cantina di Soave Pinot Grigio 'Della Rocca' White Wine

The Cantina di Soave was founded in 1898 and is today one of Italy’s most prestigious wine producers. Piece by piece, Cantina di Soave has succeeded in assembling over time an illustrious mosaic of winemaking facilities and vineyards that now extends far beyond its territory of Soave to include the Garda area and the hills of Valpolicella, the domain of Amarone.

The winery’s goals are to further develop the varieties’ quality potential and to contribute to their long tradition, to which Cantina di Soave feels itself strongly bound.

The Pinot Grigio comes from the sunny hills of Veneto and is made 100% from this classic grape, which has given rise to a pure, pear and lemon-laden, crisp white wine.
