"A fresh and steely white with sliced apple, pear and lemon rind character. Medium to full body, bright acidity and a clean and fresh finish. One of my go-to whites from Italy. Drink or hold."
Wine Advocate 88
"Luminous and crisp, the 2012 Soave Classico is a tight and tonic white wine that portrays elegant mineral tones next to light shadings of peach and citrus. It is beautifully balanced and elegantly tempered, but also shows restraint and a somewhat timid side. The crisp acidity brings it alive in the mouth. After a long day tasting for this report, this is what I bought back home to pair with my favorite Chinese take-out. Drink 2013-2015."~ML

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.
