2021 Pieropan Soave Classico


Region: Soave, Veneto, Italy

Viticulture: Organic

Winemaker : Dario Pieropan

Established Date: 1890

Hand-picked  grapes  are de-stemmed and crushed with the free run juice fermented separately between 14-18°C in glass-lined cement tanks. The wine remains in glass-lined cement tanks on the fine lees for a period which varies according to the vintage. In the spring following the harvest the wine is bottled and then released after at least a further month in bottle. This  wine is wonderfully aromatic with floral notes, citrus, stone fruit and almond. The palate is delicate and focussed, with excellent depth of fruit on the palate, nicely balanced by a zingy acidity that enhances its long length


Sommelier’s Recommendation 

I love Pieropan Soave. There is no other Soave that even comes close to these guys. A clear benchmark leader in the region that is still run by the Pieropan Family. Aromas that jump out of the glass, a beautiful mouth feel and a long and lingering finish. I haven’t found a guest I have recommended this wine to that hasn’t loved it.

At the heart of the  Soave Classico zone is the Pieropan property, which dates back to 1890. Leonildo ‘Nino’ Pieropan, who sadly passed away in 2018, was the first to show the world just how great Soave, and Italian white wine, can be. He recognised the importance of terroir early on, acquiring various hillside vineyards and expanding the prestigious Calvarino and La Rocca vineyards, first made as single vineyard crus in 1971 and 1978 respectively.

Today, sons Dario (winemaker) and Andrea (viticulturist) continue the family tradition. The brothers have converted all of their vineyards to organic and are overseeing the new winery being built amongst the vineyards just outside the village.
