A gorgeous and classic aperitif, this producer makes the world's best examples of this important style - Soave from Italy's Veneto. With limited yields, the volcanic hillsides of the Soave Classico region gives minerality, almost steeliness on the palate along with delicious honeydew melon, lemon, green apple, yellow flowers, almonds and marzipan. Definitely European and one of our permanent favourites.

Grape

90% Garganega, 10% Trebbiano di Soave

Its Origins

The four generations of Pieropan family craft a glorious, compelling bottle of Soave Classico DOC in this entry level offering. Like a finely tuned watch, Leonildo Pieropan styles it with great varietal character, allowing the terroir to show without oak treatment. The Garganegra grapes are sourced from the warm limestone hillsides surrounding the village of Soave, in the north-east province of Verona, Italy. Influenced by the mists coming off of the Po River to the west, this thicker skinned and later ripening varietal is blended with the more delicate and neutral Trebbiano di Soave grape. With limited yields, the compelling aromas of honeydew melon, lemon, green apple (not Granny Smith), yellow flowers, almonds and marzipan. The less fertile decomposed volcanic rock on the hillsides of the Soave Classico region gives way to minerality, almost steeliness on the palate. Brilliant, top notch European white wine.
