Inama, Soave Classico DOC (Veneto, Italy) 2021

($16):  Talented and hard-working producers, such as Inama, are resurrecting Soave’s image that was tarnished and virtually destroyed by innocuous swill of the past.  Now, wines from the Soave Classico DOC from top producers are frequently providing far more quality than their prices suggest.  Here is one example.  Weighing in at a modest 12.0 percent stated alcohol, this lively white provides more body and punch than you would expect.  Wonderfully acidity in the finish amplifies its good concentration and depth.  A hint a nuttiness adds to its appeal.  And the price.  Well, stock up for the summer.
