On the nose aromas of nuts and exotic fruits lead to an elegant and beautifully balanced palate, with notes of spice and a light minerality on the finish.
Pieropan, ‘La Rocca’ Soave Classico
£32.20 Per Bottle
Pieropan’s estate covers 58 hectares of vineyard which are
situated on the stony hills of Soave Classico. The Pieropan family
has been producing wines in Soave since the 1890s. Indeed, they
were the first producer to bottle a wine with the name Soave on
the label in the early 1930s. Nino Pieropan took over from his father
in 1970 and was the first producer in Soave to make a singlevineyard wine, ‘Calvarino’, in 1971. Nino’s two sons, Andrea and
Dario, took over the running of the estate in 2017 when Nino fell ill
and before he passed away in April 2018. From the 2015 vintage
onwards, all Pieropan wines are organically certified.
