Pieropan is “one of the great names in Soave” (Vinous). Founded in 1880, they make wines of such elegance, intensity and character they have critics queueing at the door. This 94-point, single vineyard Calvarino Cru has amazing intensity and finesse.
Pieropan “makes impossibly delicious Soave Classicos” (Wine Advocate) of the finest quality, in another flavour realm to that of other estates. The founder, in 1880, was Leonildo Pieropan, a doctor in Soave. His grandson, also Leonildo, was “one of Italy’s most gifted and knowledgeable winemakers” (Vinous). Within their 30 hectares the family have three single cru vineyards, from which they make flagship wines Calvarino and La Rocca. Aged up to 60 years old, vines are tended organically with the utmost care. Wine Advocate talks of this wine’s “power and persistence”, “crisp mineral definition” and “peach, pear, honey, dried herb and distant exotic spice”. In magnum, it ages even better. A showstopper at a dinner party for discerning guests.
"Great vitality and delicacy, as well as the distinctive, rich and complex texture of high-end Soave"
