Pieropan Soave Classico La Rocca 2011
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
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.
The 2011 Soave Classico La Rocca is a gorgeous wine and every last drop should be savored. It displays an elegant aromatic embroidery of brimstone, pencil shaving, stone fruit, fresh nectarine and honeysuckle. No one element overshadows the others and the energy and freshness is remarkable. Mildly creamy fruit appears on the close. This is one of Italy-s most age-worthy Soaves.
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.
