Pieropan “Calvarino” Soave Classico, 2015

£19.50

Soave has a reputation for producing fairly dull wines whose stock in trade for has, for many years, been neutrality.  True Soave, like this, is incomparable.  It has pronounced white flower, orchard fruit, honey and citrus aromas.  Concentrated, stylish and long.  A must try wine.

“Always one of Italy’s premier white wines, Pieropan’s gorgeous 2015 Calvarino sets a new benchmark. Opening with heady aromas of white spring wildflower, citrus blossom, aromatic herb and crushed rock, the savory palate delivers layers of lemon drop, ripe apple, juicy pear and tangy mineral notes. It’s concentrated yet elegant and thoroughly delicious. Drink through 2025.” (02.01.2018)

Pieropan

 

Pieropan’s estate covers 46 hectares of vineyard which are situated on the stony hills of Soave Classico. The Pieropan family has been producing wines in Soave since the 1890s. Indeed, they were the first producer to bottle a wine with the name Soave on the label in the early 1930s. Nino Pieropan took over from his father in 1970 and was the first producer in Soave to make a single vineyard wine, ‘Calvarino’, in 1971. Nino’s two sons, Andrea and Dario, now work with him running the estate.

From the 2015 vintage onwards, all Pieropan wines are organically certified.
