100% Garganega. I believe the normal price on this is around $14 but I was able to find it for as low as $11.

From the bottle:
“Rocca Sveva Soave Classico is made with 100% GARGANEGA grape. Soave, one of Italy’s most loved white wines, is a dry wine that is full of bright fruit with luscious overtones of fresh apples and green melons. Showcasing lots of character, good acidity, and roundness in the mouth, Rocca Sveva Soave Classico is a great wine for all types of seafood dishes, grilled poultry, and sushi.
This is the second of two Soave wines that I am reviewing. The 2009 Cantina di Soave Rocca Sveva Soave Classico is a bit simpler than the 2009 Fattori Motto Piane Soave reviewed yesterday, but still a nice wine. It exhibits aromas of light citrus and floral. It has a nice citrus flavor with predominantly grapefruit and lemon notes. The finish is sweet but short, and a bit dry. This is a nice wine to drink when you want to relax at the end of long hot day and simply let your mind wander.
