Inama, Soave Classico DOC (Veneto, Italy) Vigneti di Foscarino Vecchie Vigne 2017

($23, Dalla Terra Winery Direct):  One of the reasons I love Soave is that — when made by top producers such as Inama — the wines over-deliver.  The region is still trying to recover from its reputation of dilute innocuous wines.  As a result, the prices remain depressed despite the leap in quality.  Take this one for example.  Inama is a consistently great producer.   Foscarino vineyard is one of Soave’s top sites, and it comes from old vines.  No wonder the wine is stunning.   And for $23, even more stunning.   It has good weight with a lava-like minerality and refreshing acidity.  It’s a perfect choice for grilled swordfish.
