Winemaker Notes

Brilliant straw yellow color with greenish hints. The delicate nose is reminiscent of almond blossoms and marzipan. Good depth of fruit on the palate, balanced by a zingy acidity thatenhances its long length.

Pair with soups, vegetable-based starters, egg-based dishes and seafood. It is also an excellent aperitif.

Wine Enthusiast
Savory and fresh, this opens on alluring aromas of white flower, orchard fruit, citrus and a whiff of crushed rock while the palate offers creamy white peach, apple and lemon drop. A saline mineral note lingers on the finish.
Editors’ Choice
D 92
Decanter
Perhaps the most famous Soave producer, this is the 50th vintage for Nino Pieropan, and is a blend of 85% Garganega and 15% Trebbiano di Soave. The vines are cultivated on clay-basalt volcanic soil, giving flinty aromas on the nose, combined with stone fruit flavours and a long lasting, intense, mineral finish.
TP 90
Tasting Panel
The blend of 85% Garganega and 15% Trebbiano di Soave from the family’s estate in the Soave Classico zone—and a low ABV of 12%—showcases Nino Pieropan’s 50th vintage and perhaps one of the label’s finest. The aromatics are exceptional, with flint-inspired apricot and lemon curd. The palate is crisp and clean, further enhancing stone fruit and minerality.

Pieropan Pieropan Estate Winery Image

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.

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.
