Stefano Inama feels the key to making great Soave is “Working with old vines from the best plots” and this is one of the plots that dates back to when his father bought the vineyard in the 1950s. Foscarino is Inama's interpretation of the old-style Soave Classico that looks back to ancient times. Hand-selection from old, south-facing vines located in the Monte Foscarino on basaltic-volcanic soil, and employing pre-used barrels and minimalist winemaking.

The label depicts two heads inspired by those initially drawn by the English architect Inigo Jones (1573 – 1652), one of the first Englishmen to study architecture in Italy under Andrea Palladio in Vicenza for many years. This is another “concept” label that has taken on such importance it has become the company logo: the expression of two faces, which originally referred to love, represent the two faces of wine, the sacred and meditative one on the right and the more profane, and inebriated one on the left. Wine, perfect representation of the mankind’s essence, according to the conditions, can be sacred or Bacchanalesque.

On the nose, this is fresh, mineral, deep, with fragrant field flower notes; camomile, elderflower, iris. On the palate it is rich, complex and multi-layered with an almond finish. With the passing of time, these notes transform into even more complex aromas of pollens and dried flowers.

It matches well with vitello tonnato (veal with tuna sauce), risotto with fish, sushi. Traditional Italian dishes such as baccalà alla vicentina with polenta, fish soups. Pair also with vegetables, particularly pumpkin soup, peas soup, risotto ai bruscandoli (sprout hops) and monte veronese cheese, cous cous with vegetables. Serve at 8°C – 10°C (i.e. remove from the fridge about half an hour before serving).
