This is the freshest, youngest wine in the Pieropan family range. An effervescent and expressive Soave, with classic white flower, almond blossom and a touch of citrus. Rounded, ripe fruit is perfectly balanced by a fresh, clean acidity. Long and fragrant, it has a note of fine, almond pastry on the finish.
Soave wines are light to medium bodied – so best to avoid very heavy, meaty dishes. They are light enough to enjoy on their own or with salty nibbles. At the table they work really well with fish, white meat or vegetable dishes that do not have too heavy a sauce. Some lovely pairings are with skate with black butter and capers, roast chicken, grilled trout or hake, or just with a simple quiche.
Garganega: 85 %, Trebbiano di Soave: 15%
Awards and Accolades
2015 Vintage: 91 Points - James Suckling "A fresh and steely white with sliced apple, pear and lemon rind character. Medium to full body, bright acidity and a clean and fresh finish. One of my go-to whites from Italy. Drink or hold."
From the Producer
Pieropan has shown the world just how great Garganega can be. Third generation Leonildo (Nino) recognised the importance of terroir early on, acquiring various hillside crus and expanding the prestigious Calvarino and La Rocca vineyards. Today, Nino is joined by sons Andrea and Dario, maintaining the family’s profound commitment to the terroir and tradition of Soave and, more recently, Valpolicella.
The single vineyard wines Calvarino and La Rocca are polar opposites, yet they share a remarkable capacity to age gracefully. Calvarino, with 30% Trebbiano, is oak-free with pure fruit that is tight and minerally. La Rocca, from the vineyard that overlooks the town itself, is late harvested and aged in tonneaux, displaying ripe tropical fruit with an intense, layered palate that is velvety and persistent. Recioto di Soave, invented by Leonildo’s father, is made with the best grapes from the recie – ears of the bunch – and dried on racks for five months. The wine is an exquisite balance between delicate sweetness and refreshing acidity.
