This award winning Soave can be found on the wine lists of most of the world's best restaurants. This wine is from Pieropan's single vineyard 'La Rocca' in the Veneto region in northeast Italy. This vineyard has limestone and clay soils which Nino Pieropan feels give sufficient ripeness in his Garganega to make a wine solely from this variety.
The wine is golden yellow in the glass, with intense, concentrated perfumes that follow through to the palate. Classic La Rocca aromas of almond essence and honey lead to an elegant and beautifully balanced palate, with notes of vanilla and almond kernel, ripe apricots and exotic fruit. The long finish has a light minerally edge. This delightful wine would work well with cured meats or soft cheeses as well as pasta with seafood sauces.
