The Pra winery, although only started in the early 1980’s, has become not only one of the top producers in the Soave appellation, but one of the most important and visionary white wine makers in all of Italy (now red wine as well). The winery is run by Graziano Prà, whose family owned their vineyards for generations, but never commercialized the wines in bottles. The vineyards are situated in the heart of the appellation, in Monteforte D’Alpone. Besides Soave, the winery also produces Valpolicella and Amarone from a vineyard that he purchased and planted in 2001, and whose truly remarkable results are only now being discovered.
Bright red color with tints of purple. The mineral notes in the wine are accentuated with the period of maturation in the bottle. The nose is of sharp spice and berries. On the palate it has good acidity and freshness. The persistent tannins give harmony to the wine. An aftertaste of black pepper and currant.
