La Rocca, first made in 1978, is named after the medieval castle and fortress overlooking the town. Made from 100% Garganega, grown on calcareous soil (the only soil of its type in Soave) and harvested quite late. Following a brief skin maceration, fermentation takes place in tonneaux before transfer to 20hl barrels, where it is aged on fine lees for one year. Intense, sunny yellow in colour, the nose recalls ripe exotic fruit and roasted nuts, the multi-layered palate is complex with beautifully balanced richness and outstanding length. 

"A complex, layered and creamy Soave with aromas of flint, smoked almonds, nutmeg, charred lemon, grilled pineapple and thyme. Medium to full body. There’s so much going on, from subtle spice to ripe citrus and buttery, creamy undertones. Long and compact. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold." - 95 Points,
