ILatium Morini, Soave, DOC, Veneto, Italy

Regular price £12.99

Light crisp and refreshing Soave, with delicate mineral and citrus finish.

Inspired by the quality of the wines produced by their neighbour, Romano dal Forno, the seven brothers and cousins who own Latium Morini ddecided not to sell their grapes to the locale Cantine Sociale, as their forefathers had for years but to make their own wines instead. Latium originates from the Latin name for their hometown, Illasi, which lies in the eastern part of the Valpolicella district. Over 2000 years ago the Romans established the towns and villages in the area and planted vines and olive trees and so this land has a long viticultural tradition.

Tasting Note: Light crisp and refreshing white, straw green in colour. White flowers, apple and exotic fruits on the nose which follow in the mouth to a delicate, citrusy, dry with almondy and mineral finish.
