Soave is one of those regions [and white wines coming from there] that has been given a bad rap in the US because of the slew of cheap wine historically brought here bearing it's name.  However, I decided to take a risk and picked up this nice beauty which has bit of acidity over top some delicate citrus and possibly apricot flavors.  It goes down nicely with a very light mouth and even shares just a touch of minerality.

Our Mission: The Black Winer strives to expose African Americans [and others] to wines, without the flair, stuffiness, and airs of elitism and snobbery that you get from sommeliers and high level wine enthusiasts. We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
