La Rocca, made from 100% Garganega and aged for 15 months in large barrels. Bright intense yellow with aromas of tropical fruits and gentle oak notes, rich and complex. On the palate apple and orange zest with nutty flavors and vivid acidity. Smooth and elegant the wine ends with oak, mineral notes and gentle spice. Tasting Sample.

Deeper in flavor with a complexity that hides just below the surface of this wine that needs another year or two or plenty of air now to start showing it's layers more noticeably. Dense, deeply flavored and completely graceful. Of you love white Burgundy this is in your wheelhouse! #pieropan #soave #garganega

You’ll be hard pressed to find a greater Soave out there. This wine at this age needs air to show its full potential. The nose shows sweet ripe melon, raw hazelnut, cut grass and fresh herb garden. The palate is soft and bright at the same time. Flavors of crunchy pear, green melon and citrus zest combine with dried bitter herbs and big round acidity. The finish is incredibly long and shows off the cleansing acidity and a kiss of stone fruit. A wonderful wine that deserves to age.

Very nice. Stellar wine and a great value. 2013. Soave normale. Not the La Rocca. This app does not seem to let one make changes.
