    Winemaker 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.

    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.
