Re Midas 2012 Soave DOC

Soave DOC, Italy
100% Garganega; 12% ABV; screw cap
$4 at the Richmond, CA, store on 4 May

ReMidas_2012_SoaveI’ve previously enjoyed a number of GO wines made partly or entirely from the Garganega grape, so, since this wine boasted about its composition on the back label, I picked it up.  I’ve liked others better, but for this price, I think this wine is quite good.

In a gently textured medium body, the wine shows solid flavors of floral apple / lemon / pear, with a nicely minerally structure, pleasant acid, and a little supporting wood / roasted almond.

The next day, the rest left in the bottle was more forwardly fruity, maybe with more yellow grapefruit, and less minerally.  Still yummy.
