Sant’Antonio Soave Fontana 2008

Tenuta Sant’Antonio, Soave DOC, Fontana 2008 Minerality and lemon mark the nose.  In the mouth you’ll find plenty of fresh lemon flavor, like biting into one freshly picked from the tree. You also get that zip of acidity that lingers with the minerality for a long time. This light-bodied wine is steely and would pair handsomely with some oysters on the half shell.The family at Tenuta Sant'Antonio
