94 Points - The Wine Advocate

"The 2015 Soave Classico la Rocca (with 48,000 bottles made) is a wine that expands upon the idea of texture, more so than any other wine in its league. This is partially due to the warm vintage that naturally produces thick, luscious and creamy fruit nuances to begin with. This wine would pair easily with white meat or shellfish, especially if Indian or Moroccan spices are sprinkled over.” - Monica Larner

    Pieropan

    Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

    Four generations of the Pieropan family have been making wine in Soave since the 1890s and by the 1930s were the first to make a wine labeled as Soave. Today the estate, which covers 58 hectares on the stony hills of Soave Classico, is known as one of the most acclaimed in all of Italy for their white wines which exclusively feature traditional varieties.

    They are most famous for their two single vineyard wines, the “Calvarino” and “La Rocca.”

    Calvarino is a Soave classic and has been owned by the family since 1901. It is unoaked and with a high mineral quality coming from the classic volcanic basalt. La Rocca, situated on the only limestone bed in the area, is fermented in 500-liter barrels, and has won seven gold medals at the international Wine Challenge.

    Also the family have been producing Valpolicella and Amarone with great success after purchasing a 16-hectare property in the Val d’Illasi,

    From the 2015 vintage onwards, all Pieropan wines are certified organic, to respect the local terrain.
