The superb 4th-generation Pieropan estate produces the finest wines of Soave Classico. Their secret? Fantastic vineyards which they tend with pure dedication. Their Classico regularly scores well over 90 points – crisp peach, melon and mineral notes.
Pieropan is synonymous with the finest quality wines from Soave, in another flavour realm to other estates. Not only that, the founder – the late Leonildo Pieropan Snr, a former physician – invented Soave Recioto, a delicious, sweet wine using air-dried grapes, like Amarone. Within their 30 hectares of vines the family have three single Cru vineyards, from which they make flagship wines Calvarino and La Rocca. You could call this their standard wine, but that wouldn’t do it justice. Using organic Garganega and Trebbiano grapes from vines up to 60 years old, grown on volcanic soil, the wine shows pure fruit, with not a drop of oak. Ageing on its lees for six months lends a creamy complexity. Savour on its own or with creamy fish pie.
"The 2020 I had was a wonderful surprise. I did not previously know that a Soave could be this good"
