Overview

The grapes for this wine come entirely from Pra’s vineyards in the Soave Classico zone but the fact that

the bottle has screw cap closure means that the word ‘Classico’ may not appear. ‘Otto’ is Italian for

eight (8), a lucky number for some.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The wine has a light yellow-straw colour

Aroma

There is fresh hay and honey on the nose, hints of pear; good intensity and persistence.

Palate

The 'honey' disappears on the palate, giving way to ripe fruit cut by a fine line of acidity which maintains freshness and liveliness in the mouth. There is a marked salty-biscuit minerality about it reflecting the volcanic origins of the terrain. Fruit is predominantly pear and apple, just a hint of the sub-tropical, and there is an impressive balance so that there is nothing of the overripe nor of the excessively tight about the wine. The finish is clean and medium long.

Winery Profile

Brothers Graziano and Sergio Pra combine to make Soave Classico that is "one of the classic expressions of the genre year after year, while cru Monte Grande brings an extra complexity and structure to the equation." (Nicolas Belfrage) They are committed to the classic Soave varieties, Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave.
