Now in its third generation of leadership, the Inama family has been producing wine for over forty years in the Veneto. The family has a well-defined goal to produce different wines whose only aim is to represent their vision of the land, despite the styles and trends of the moment. It was the patriarch, Giuseppe who helped bring Soave Classico to the world’s stage.
This is a completely stunning 96-point Soave from Inama who Antonio Galloni referred to as “one of Soave’s, actually Italys, most important producers…”. This wine, in this vintage, may just also be their very best effort to date – a masterpiece. While James Suckling’s ratings are often pretty good, his reviews are usually too terse to really be useful, but this one got him talking and then clamoring a bit towards the end.
96 Points, James Suckling
The nose is quite reserved, showing some melon, pear and lavender. Then, on the palate, the expansion starts on a base of silky almond cream and builds up slowly and steadily through the long, long finish. Aftertaste of lemon cream. Never ebullient, but medium-bodied, layered and silky, this is quiet refinement flexing its muscles. Total balance. Beautifully done. All in place. Best ever.
