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.

Medium lemon color with a nose redolent of apple, pear, blossom and spice. High but well-balanced acidity, medium body with a lanolin texture in the mouth (it’s 85% garganega and 15% trebbiano di Soave) and flavors of apple continuing on a long finish. Lovely, and a good value.

Ripe and fruit-forward despite the modest frame, lightly salty, and very lightly nutty. Good buy on clearance at Safeway for $13

A lovely, spirited Soave Classico from the Pieropan, utterly fresh and bright with notes of Meyer lemon zest, white flowers, dried honey, and almond extract. Aged on fine lees in concrete, the effect of which is largely textural, lending minerally undertones of wet pomace, and slight autolytic character. A nice lingering finish. Clean and delicious, and I might add, great QPR.
