Brigaldara Soave DOC

Contributed by Isabel Wai, Brand Associate, Rogers & Company

In the 2000s, Stefano Cesari and his sons, Lamberto and Antonio, initiated a profound renewal at Brigaldara. Today, the estate covers 120 hectares of land, 47 of which are planted with vineyards, while the rest is made up of olive groves, crops, pastures and woodland. The winery received the esteemed 2022 Gambero Rosso Sustainable Viticulture Award as recognition for its 360º commitment to a sustainable product, from cultivation in the vineyard to its work in the cellar.

Brigaldara’s Soave is 100% Garganega grapes, hand-harvested from 40-year-old vines. The fruit undergoes a selective cryoextraction process where it is partially frozen to preserve the natural aromas and flavours while preventing oxidation to maximize the full aromatic potential of the fresh grapes.

This wine is fresh and fruity with notes of chamomile, peach and citrus. Clean, medium-long finish. A perfect brunch pairing.

The current vintage will be available from the May 21 Vintages release at the LCBO. It is priced at $14.95 (LCBO# 23030), recently receiving 90 points from James Suckling:

“Aromas and flavours of whites raspberries and pineapple with a lightly spicy, mineral bed. Medium-bodied, fresh and spicy to the end. Drink now. Screw cap.”
