The Pieropan family has been producing wines in Soave since the 1860s.

In the philosophy of the Pieropan family business, their vineyard is the guarantee of true quality. The family personally manage their vineyards which exclusively feature traditional varieties. he new red wines, from the hilly Val d’Illasi in Valpolicella, are a true expression of the Pieropan style, favoring complexity and elegance. The viticulture is designed to be environmentally friendly.
Pieropan Soave 2012
Hillside vineyard in the Soave classico zone. Soave Classico DOC Grape varieties: Garganega: 85 %
Trebbiano di Soave: 15%. This is the freshest, youngest wine in the Pieropan family range. It is made entirely from fruit grown in their own vineyards situated in the Soave Classico zone and planted only with indigenous grape varieties.
A fresh and expressive Soave, with classic white flower, almond blossom and a touch of citrus. Brilliant straw yellow color with greenish hints. The delicate nose is reminiscent of almond blossoms and marzipan.
Good depth of fruit on the palate, nicely balanced by a zingy acidity that enhances its long length;
Serving suggestions: It makes an excellent partner for soups, starters, especially vegetable based such as asparagus, peas, courgette, egg-based dishes or seafood and fresh water fish dishes. It is an excellent aperitif, especially when served with simple canapés. Serve at 12°C.
