The Pieropan family

December 11, 2018

The Pieropan family has been producing wines in Soave since the 1890s andare dedicated to creating wines with character that best represent the region in North-Eastern Itally.

They have become without doubt one of the most respected producers in that part of the country. Brothers Dario & Andrea have taken over from their father (who’d previously take over from his father!) and from the 2015 are 100% organic.

La Rocca

100% Garganega (the main grape used in Soave production) from a single vineyard, this wine is full of intensely concentrated aromas, white flower and peaches and a touch of marzipan. All this fruit is perfectly balanced by a fresh acidity, making this an excellent wine for rich dishes – Christmas dinner anyone?

Calvarino

A Garganega lead blend with a support role from Trebbiano di Soave. This dry white has a nose that is fresh and floral with aromas of apricot, lemon and honey. The name Calvarino is in reference to the, notoriously hard to work, volcanic soil in the vineyard. It’s this very soil that give the wine a real richness of flavour!
