Wine Pieropan Soave Classico 2020
|Alcohol content i||12.0%|
|Bottle size and vintage||0.75 L - 2020|
A typical and paradigmatic Soave Classic, with a young and fresh character, which comes exclusively from its own vineyards located in the classic area of Soave and entirely from native vines. It was in 1890 that Leonildo Pieropan decided to begin to experiment with the production of wine, starting from the vineyards owned by the family. A journey made of hard work and passion, which today sees in Leonildo, grandson of the founder, the figure who managed to make Pieropan a modern and technological winery; an avant-garde structure, where the ancient rural traditions are never forgotten, but rather always represent the base from which to create authentic labels, just like this Soave.At sight it is straw yellow with greenish reflections; the nose opens on floral notes to then develop scents of yellow fruits, vines and elderberries, with mineral hints, creating an elegant and fine aromatic bouquet. On the palate it is agile, dry, mineral and fruity, with a pleasant persistence. This wine is excellent for any moment of conviviality. Ideal as an accompaniment to fish dishes such as fish soup, grilled fish, sushi, tartare and pasta with seafood.

Great flavours, great value wine
This is the 'basic' Soave from Pieropan and whilst not in the same division as La Rocca, it is a superbly made wine. Lovely nose, reasonable length on the palate and at this price, a brilliant house white wine that can be drunk on its own or with fish/shellfishby: kenmat (01/10/2018) - Vintage 2017
Well made Classico, well spent money!
Taste of lemon and a touch of grape, pear and is it peach? Minerals and a tiny amount of honey. Medium body, acidic, a little like a riesling but yet not. Long, delicate finish.by: fjcbarnes (20/12/2017) - Vintage 2016

A favourite white when in Italy, so delighted to be able to purchase for delivery to the UK at a competitive price (even despite hefty delivery charge). Thumbs up to Italvinus!by: Squiffy (30/12/2016) - Vintage 2015
The best Soave!
Pieropan make the best Soave - this entry level wine is lovely but try the Rocca and Calvarino single vineyards - will keep well for up to 10 years and improve with bottle ageby: firstname.lastname@example.org (18/02/2019) - Vintage 2017
Refreshing affordable wine
While La Rocca may be rather better but it's also much more expensive and this is a reliable refreshing wine that is easy to drink on any occasion. A great producer.
Wine from Pieropan
The untimely death of Leonildo Pieropan, in April 2018, could only highlight the central role that the winery of that amazing visionary had in the revival and consolidation of the Soave image. A volcanic area of exceptional potential, which thanks to the Pieropans made its way from Veneto to the world. Innovation, at the Pieropan's, was based not only on a modern and agile conception of Garganega, but also on the recognition of Soave as a great cru wine, of long refinements...
