Today, the estate's 74 acres under vine include three single vineyards, all within the historical backbone of the Soave appellation (Soave Classico): Calvarino, La Rocca and Le Colombare. Terrain is respectively clayey/basaltic, calcareous/clayey, and clayey/marly/tuffaceous, yielding small crops of highly concentrated Garganega and Trebbiano grapes. The range is crafted by Leonildo himself, whose wine-making genius, constant research and innovative methods have carved a unique niche for these exceptional, extract-full and long-living whites that go far, far beyond their own appellation.

Pieropan Soave 2011
Other White Wine from Veneto, Italy
Brilliant, light straw yellow with greenish reflections. Fresh, delicate bouquet with notes of vine blossoms, cherry blossoms and elderberry. Fresh and flavorful on the palate, very appealing and well balanced. Pleasing bitterish finish.
Very appealing as an aperitif or to match with soup, first courses with vegetables, such as asparagus, peas, zucchini, egg-based dishes, and both saltwater and freshwater fish.
Enclosed by the original town walls and dominated by its medieval fortress, Soave has a peaceful, timeless quality about it. In the heart of the old town is the winery of Leonildo and Teresita Pieropan, which goes back to 1860. The present Leonildo ("Nino")'s grandfather, Leonildo Senior, founded the estate and 'invented' Recioto di Soave, a concentrated dessert wine applying a system similar to Tuscany's governo to the indigenous, white Garganega grape.
