Customer Rating Based on a scale of 1 to 5 glasses

Selected #2 on Wine Enthusiast Magazine Top 100 Wines of 2014!

The Pieropan estate dates back to the late 1800’s when Nino Pieropan’s grandfather built a following for his excellent and innovative Soave wines. Today The Pieropans are showing the world just how great Soave can be in the right hands. Terrain is Nino’s first secret, like the vineyard where this wine is sourced, La Rocca. It’s a single vineyard on the Monte Rocchetta with Southeast exposure between 700 and 1,000 feet above sea level and old vines up to 50 years of age. 100% Garganega, after brief maceration on the skins, the wine aged in oak barrels for one year, followed by six months’ bottle age. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 95 points and Editors Choice saying “This stunning single-vineyard selection is one of Italy’s most iconic whites and helped kick off Soave’s renaissance. It delivers pressed yellow flowers, golden apples, citrus, melon and mango alongside mineral and toasted almond notes. Already delicious and well balanced, it will age beautifully and develop more complexity for several years at least. Drink through 2021.” Very Limited!
