The wine

Baroque, classy, a unique breed wine, La Rocca is the flagship wine of the Pieropan company.

Beautiful bright golden yellow. The nose is expressed in an overwhelming vortex of fresh and clean aromas: citrus notes of grapefruit and cedar, ripe exotic fruit, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, honey sensations, lavender flower, lily of the valley, sage and toasted notes of vanilla.
