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.

Pieropan's entry level Soave is a soft-textured beautiful wine with enough acidity for seafood and a mellow character for consuming on its own. This is what true Soave is all about. Delicious and a bargain at less that $15

This wins the category for most dependable Italian white for 15 a bottle. (Wine-searcher has it for under 15 in NY, FL, and CA) Any other nominees? Colle Stefano Verdicchio; Antonelli Grechetto; Gini Soave Classico; Montenidoli Vernaccia; what am I missing?

Gulpably delicious, this one is fresh, minerally, and pure essence of yellow orchard fruits and white flowers. Sick, sick value at about $15-18

Great balance, very acidic and citrusy. Great pair for sushi in the future

HUGE green structure! Seafood and/or light cream sauce pairing - tremendous. This teaches me that the wine can belong beautifully without being well-balanced. It is a matter of pairing!! Has long elevating brightness!!

Delicious summer wine. Medium body with loads of peach and minerals.
