Pieropan Soave Classico La Rocca 2017
Brilliant and intense yellow with golden hints; characterful wine, reminiscent of exotic fruit and nuts on the nose; soft and persistent on the palate, with hints of spice, length and elegance.
I love the smoky and toasted-almond nose of this concentrated Soave. There’s a great interplay of ripeness and discreet tannins and a very long, fresh and mineral finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
Aromas tropical fruit, chamomile, toasted nut and acacia lift out of the glass. The full, rounded palate doles out ripe apricot, yellow peach, juicy pineapple and grilled herb, while a bitter almond note graces the lingering finish. Drink through 2023.
Wine & Spirits
La Rocca is Pieropan’s only vineyard planted in limestone soils, and the family harvests this plot last, allowing a small percentage of botrytis to develop. In 2016, those concentrated berries gave the wine a rich, glossy texture and heady honeysuckle scents. Its lush flavors of dried pineapple, pear and candied lemon evolve into savory notes of smoked pork and hints of sweet spice gained from a year in oak barrels. It could almost pass for a Meursault.
Intense nose with evolved flavors of ripe fruit, honey and vanilla. Shows minerality on the palate with smooth and deep texture.
