Villa Molino Soave Classico DOC, 2021

Garganega is the white grape that produces Soave wine, and I prefer it to Italian Pinot Grigio. Back in the 1970s and 1980s, Soave, made by Bolla, was the Italian white most widely available in the United States. Today, the best examples, such as Pieropan, sell for about $20...and are worth the premium. Trader Joe's, which sells numerous bargain-priced Pinot Grigios, suddenly started offering this Soave Classico for $5.99. It is an excellent value.

Light color. Also light and fruity in aromas and flavors. Baked apple, apricots, almonds, white flowers. Nothing green or herbal about this wine, and that is a plus for me. Pleasingly dry texture on the palate with a twist of lemon that begs for another sip. For $5.99, I will go back for more of this wine.
