Pieropan ‘La Rocca’ Soave Classico is made entirely from fruit grown in Pieropan’s own vineyards situated in the Soave Classico zone and planted only with indigenous grape varieties. The delicate nose is reminiscent of almond blossoms and marzipan. Good depth of fruit on the palate that is nicely balanced by a zingy acidity that enhances its long length.
Pieropan’s estate covers 58 hectares of vineyard which are situated on the stony hills of Soave Classico. The Pieropan family has been producing wines in Soave since the 1890s. Indeed, they were the first producer to bottle a wine with the name Soave on the label in the early 1930s. Nino Pieropan took over from his father in 1970 and was the first producer to make a single-vineyard Soave, ‘Calvarino’, in 1971. Nino’s two sons, Andrea and Dario, took over the running of the estate in 2017 when Nino fell ill and before he passed away in April 2018. From the 2015 vintage onwards, all Pieropan wines are certified organic.
