Winemaker Notes

Intense, brilliant, sunny yellow; the nose recalls exotic fruit, muskmelon & mango, nuts and subtle spice; structured on palate, layered, intense, silky & persistent, notes of vanilla, perfect balance fruit/acidity, long finish.

Wine Enthusiast

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.

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

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.

Pieropan
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.
