The 2020 Soave Classico wafts up with enticing notes of kiwi and sour melon contrasted by savory herbs. It’s deeply textural and round in feel, with a tart interplay of lemon and lime that’s nicely offset by a pleasant inner sweetness. There’s wonderful harmony here, as the 2020 tapers off with green botanicals and a flourish of minerality. This “entry-level” Soave Classico from Pieropan punches well above its price point. Since Pieropan makes three different bottlings, one from each tank, of their Soave, I thought it prudent to add the lot number for reference. (Lot# 26.10.21) (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2022)

Underripe pomelo, lime pith and crushed gravel on the nose, such a silky yet bright and citrusy mouthfeel with a graceful almond skin minerality!! So refreshing!

This is a gorgeous complex layered wine. Floral, green apple, hint of papaya, minerally. Excellent QPR! Well done!

クラシコエリアらしく、しっかりライムストーン、火打ち石、火薬を感じる。
メロンや洋梨のような上品な果実感もあるし、すきっとした酸、ミネラルもあって、ソアヴェクラシコの定番として讃えられるのも納得。

Tangerine and grapefruit peel nose, kumquat and yellow apple palate. Saline mineral, slightly oily finish. Medium body, medium acid food friendly.

Quite energetic, yet enjoyable. This lively white from Soave blends a brisk acidity and bracing minerality with flavors of pear, grapefruit, and citrus. On the nose, a bit of almond, marzipan, and a glimmer of ginger. 85% Garganega, 15% Trebbiano di Soave. 3/12/22.

A classic Italian white named after the medieval village of Soave. The varietal is Gargantua which flourishes in the rolling vineyards surrounding the village of Soave.
This fragrant white has elegant hints of Myer Lemon and Passion Fruit. Finishing scents of spring grass and wild flowers with a great acidity and a dry saline finish.
