Winemaker's Notes

This vineyard takes its name from the adjacent Medieval castle and fortress ("la rocca") dominating the little town of Soave, just east of Verona.

Pieropans La Rocca bottling distinguishes itself from Calvarino with its firmer structure and greater ageability. This effort still has plenty of life left.

Mimics Sauvignon a little in its gooseberry and red currant flavors and grapefruity acidity.

The soil is volcanic in origin, with abundant microelements, calcareous/clayey in structure. The resultant wine is from 100% Garganega grapes, late-harvested so as to ensure maximum extract, and aged in oak barrels from one year.

It is a characterful wine, reminiscent of exotic fruit and nuts on the nose, soft and persistent on the palate, with hints of spice and vanilla. It evolves beatifully with time, achieving that rare balance of components, that harmony of flavours and bouquet, which is the hallmark of superior breeding. Ideal with grilled fish and white meat.
