The Pieropan winery is in the heart of the Classico zone and dates back to 1890. Leonildo ‘Nino’ Pieropan, who sadly passed away in 2018, was the first to show the world just how great Garganega, and Italian white wine, can be. He recognised the importance of terroir early on, acquiring various hillside vineyards and expanding the prestigious Calvarino and La Rocca vineyards, first made as single vineyard crus in 1971 and 1978 respectively.
Today, sons Dario (winemaker) and Andrea (viticulturist) continue the family tradition. The brothers have converted all of their vineyards to organic and are overseeing the new winery being built amongst the vineyards just outside the village. Made mostly from Garganega grapes with the inclusion of 15% Trebbiano di Soave.
Bright pale straw colour with a subtle shading of green around the outskirts. Intense pear and red apple scents jump out of the glass followed by faint honeysuckle, quince and wet stone notes. Delicious ripe pear, lime and apple fruits flood the mouth. Nicely rounded texturally, some flinty stone like characters and infusions of fresh herbs lie underneath. Finishes dry and crisp with a long scrumptious aftertaste.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
