Otto is Prà's entry level Soave Classico. It is a blend of multiple parcels between 30 and 60 years old.

Pruning System: Pergola Veronese and Guyot
Harvest: Manual

Winemaking Notes: The grapes are softly pressed before undergoing fermentation at 54-58 degrees Fahrenheit. The wine ferments and matures in stainless steel vats. Otto does not undergo malolactic fermentation.

Tasting Notes: The bouquet is bursting with notes of flowers (hawthorn and jasmine) and bright yellow fruit (lemon, peach and apricots). On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied and flavorful, full of citrus fruit and clear mineral notes. It is dangerously delicious! Really good as an aperitif paired with delicate bites or sweet Parma ham and fresh cheese. Excellent with pasta, seafood or vegetable soups.

    The 2020 Soave Classico Otto bursts from the glass mixing crushed stone with masses of ripe orchard fruits, zests of lime and dusty florals. It’s minerally intense and sharply focused with penetrating citrus tenson and a steely streak. There’s a salty flourish that goes on and on, leaving the palate aching with residual tension. The Otto is from a mix of vineyards within the classico region, all planted in volcanic soils.
