Pieropan Soave Classico 2021 Soave, Veneto, Italy

Pieropan's estate covers 58 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 singlevineyard wine, 'Calvarino', in 1971. Nino's two sons, Andrea and Dario, took over the running of the estate in 2017 when Nino fell ill and before he passed away in April 2018. From the 2015 vintage onwards, all Pieropan wines are organically certified. Grapes were hand picked, starting from mid-September for the Trebbiano di Soave and from October for the Garganega, and taken immediately to the winery. Here, they were destemmed and crushed. Fermentation took place in glass-lined cement tanks of 60,120 and180hl at 14-18°C. The wine then remained on its fine lees until bottling the following spring, with further ageing in bottle for another month before release. 

This wine is brilliant straw yellow in colour, with greenish hints. On the nose it has aromas of almond blossoms and marzipan, with a touch of citrus. On the palate it is rounded and has flavours of ripe fruit perfectly balanced by a fresh, clean acidity that enhances its long length.
