Inama, Soave Classico DOC (Veneto, Italy) Vigneto du Lot 2017

($27, Dalla Terra Winery Direct):  Inama, one of Soave’s top producers, make a great Soave from a blend of vineyards in that appellation.  He also makes two stunning single-vineyard ones — this one, and one from Vigneto di Carbonare.  Inama’s Vigneto du Lot has power and finesse balanced by piercing acidity.  For all its power, there’s not a trace of heaviness.  A lovely lava-like sensation comes through.  This redefines Soave.
