Another solid entry-level Pieropan wine. The focus and minerality are there. Tremendous freshness, tight core of lemon and spiced pear with a slightly salty finish. A bit more subtle and delicate than prior vintages I’ve tasted.

Lemon in colour. Notes of almond, citrus and apricot. The blend is 85% Garganega and 15% Trebbiano di Soave. The latter grape gives a more luscious feel on the palate than you would expect showing peach, ripe apple and mineral. Has filled out nicely since its youth. A lovely wine at its peak with medium minus acid.

This Soave blends savory and sweet with a spicy flair. It’s soft and pliant upon entry, yet enlivened by salty minerals and brisk acids, making for a wonderfully balanced showing. The palate sizzles with residual tension, as hints of sour citrus resonate throughout the finale. $19.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, February 2021)

Lovely, especially for the price. Round and mouth-coating, with a lovely mix of sweet and savory notes. Musky on the nose. Exotic melon and apple on the attack, green almond and hay kick in in the back end. Waxy texture, crunchy finish. Great with charcuterie.

Easy drinking. Not too acidic. Pretty smooth.

Can’t go wrong with Italian grapes.

Blend of 85% Garganega & 15% Trebbiano di Soave, from the heart of Soave, the Winery of Leonildo and Teresita Pieropan dates back to 1860. Pale lemon with green edges and aromas of fresh stone fruits, floral blossoms and herb spice. On the palate apple and pineapple with lemon citrus juice notes. Well balanced with vivid acidity carrying through to a pleasing finish. Tasting a Sample.

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

Just had this again at a tasting. A blend of 85% Garganega & 15% Trebbiano di Soave, from the heart of Soave, the Winery of Leonildo and Teresita Pieropan dates back to 1860. Pale lemon straw with green edges and aromas of stone fruits, floral blossoms and herb spice. On the palate apple and pineapple with lemon citrus notes. Well balanced with clean lively acidity carrying through to a pleasing finish. Very fresh, nice. Tasting Sample.

This vintage seems particularly vibrant and electric right now. Tart pear, white peach, lemon curd, honeydew melon and crushed rocks overlaying a texture that is both delicate and saturating on the palate. Lots of savory spice and almond character on the long finish. Highly recommended.
