Pieropan Soave Classico DOC

2014

In a Nutshell

We're big fans and we tasted this mid-winter!

Tasting Notes

A fresh 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.

Production Notes

The grapes were hand picked over several passes in the vineyard and then pressed and the juice separated from the skins. The must was settled and clarified before a slow fermentation in temperature controlled cement vats at 20ºC. The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks until bottling under stelvin closure in the spring.

Press Quotes & Awards

Soave’s ‘Paleo’ soil, a mix of basalt, clay & limestone, gives bright appley fruits, freshness, savouriness with a rich full taste.

Rose Murray Brown MW, “Volcanic Wine”, rosemurraybrown.com, May 2016

There is a curious, engaging but subtle salty quality to the Soaves I enjoy the most. Flavours whirl around the mouth. It is here, this saltiness, energising and invigorating. And it's persistent. Evidence that Garganega is an impressive grape. That Soave is a truly noble wine. 93 points

Emily O'Hare, Decanter Italy Supplement, Feb 2016

From the leading Soave producer. The Pieropan family are based in the centre of the mediaeval town of Soave in the Classico heartland. Focusing on low yields, old vines and ripe fruit in their well-sited vineyards, their Soave has a richer intensity than many others. This has melón aromas, minerally palate with a creamy texture. Pricier than many Soave, but worth it

Rose Murray Brown MW, The Scotsman, 30th Jan 2016

Light-bodied and lithe, this elegant white features a stony underpinning, along with hints of orange zest and grated ginger accenting the notes of white peach and slivered almond. 88 points
