"This stunning single-vineyard selection is one of Italy’s most iconic whites and helped kick off
Soave’s renaissance. It delivers pressed yellow flowers, golden apples, citrus, melon and mango alongside mineral and toasted almond notes. Already delicious and well balanced, it will age beautifully and develop more complexity for several years at least. Drink through 2021."~KO

"The 2011 Soave Classico La Rocca is a gorgeous wine and every last drop should be savored. It displays an elegant aromatic embroidery of brimstone, pencil shaving, stone fruit, fresh nectarine and honeysuckle. No one element overshadows the others and the energy and freshness is remarkable. Mildly creamy fruit appears on the close. This is one of Italy-s most age-worthy Soaves. Drink 2013-2019."

The Pieropan legacy began in the late 1800s when visionary winemaker Leonildo Pieropan purchased his winery building in the historic town of Soave. For over a century, the Pieropan family has revolutionized winemaking in Soave, becoming one of the most highly respected wine families in all of Italy. Today, this legacy of exceptional Italian winemaking is being carried forward in the heart of Soave village by Leonildo's grandson, Leonildo "Nino" Pieropan, his wife Teresita, and their sons, Andrea and Dario. Overseeing viticulture and winemaking, respectively, Andrea and Dario employ the same rigorous attention to detail as their forebears in bringing these celebrated wines to life.
