A vivid display of wet stone, kiwi, apricots and smoky minerals lifts up from the 2018 Soave Classico La Frosca. It's silky and pliant upon entry, yet it quickly gains energetic thrust through a mix of zesty acids and salty minerals. The palate literally buzzes with residual tension, as a tart note of Granny Smith apple completes the expression perfectly. This is simply stunning today, and it's worth cellaring over the medium term as well.
