Azienda Agricola Coffele Alberto
In 1971 Giovanna Visco and her husband Giuseppe decided to retire from teaching to breathe new life into Giovanna’s family’s estate: a property with cellars in the old walled village of Soave that had lain dormant for over 30 years.
Today their children, Alberto and Chiara, are in control of the day-to-day running and are the head and heart of the place. They are fully aware that the ingredients for a great wine come from the land itself. Around 30 hectares of immaculate vineyards are planted in the Soave Classico zone around Castelcerino (200-350m above sea level) on perfectly exposed hillsides.
The garganega grape variety from this location is prized for its ripeness and natural acidity when it ripens slowly, allowing for exceptional flavour development. Coffele’s wines often go a step beyond their peers, with the hard work and careful attention to detail that is given to the vineyards. The grapes are all hand-harvested using multiple passes through the vineyards to ensure picking at the perfect moment of ripeness.
This producer is doing a great job, maintaining standards of Soave that some of their neighbours in the area, with much larger resources, would be proud to achieve. The wines are typically high in finesse with delicate mineral notes.
Made mainly from the Corvina variety in vineyards close to Verona, [this] has charm and finesse. A light ruby colour belies the considerable depth of refreshing fruit flavour. Light tannins and a basket...Made mainly from the Corvina variety in vineyards close to Verona, [this] has charm and finesse. A light ruby colour belies the considerable depth of refreshing fruit flavour. Light tannins and a basket full of ripe, red cherry fruit. Appealing berry fruit nose and perfect with Italian cuisine.
Mid ruby. A pretty, savoury cherry nose and fragrant cherry fruit on the palate. Crunchy tannins and really light of touch. Truly refreshing and a real pick-me-up wine. 16/20
