This week we’re turning you on to Soave Classico, one of the most food-friendly wines you’re going to find. This one, from Graziano Pra, is medium bodied and flavorful, full of fruit, with clear mineral notes.

“A lithe, light-bodied white, with pleasing vibrancy and focus to the mix of nectarine, grated ginger and orchard blossom flavors, backed by zippy acidity. This is hard to stop sipping, ending with a lingering, stone-tinged finish. Drink now through 2023”.
91 points, Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator

Gouda, Holland’s best-selling cheese, is made from whole milk, giving the cheese a butterfat content of 48%. To make a cheese that is even creamier, Gouda producers add extra cream to the milk, producing a cheese called Roomkaas with a butterfat content of 60%. Smooth, buttery, and delightful, this cheese pairs well with this week’s Soave Classico.
