The harvest of the Garganega grape used to produce Soave begins around mid-September and lasts until the end of October. Two passes through the vineyards along with careful grape selection ensure perfect ripening. The grapes are then left to dry for two months to intensify the flavor. The wine matures for one year in lightly toasted barrels. The oak is perfectly balanced – not overwhelming the wine, simply adding texture and complexity. Its aroma abounds with exotic fruit and gorgeous spicy, nutty notes. The palate has just a hint of vanilla with quite intense stone fruit, and traces of banana and pineapple. This Soave is superbly balanced, a demonstration of masterful vinification.

Villa Canestrari is an artisan winery that has been working 20ha of land in the Illasi Valley for four generations. Their story began in 1888, when Carlo Bonuzzi started making and bottling wines on the estate. Villa Canestrari as a brand was created in the 1990s, with the merging of the Bonuzzi and Franchi families and thus becoming a symbol of high-quality winemaking.
