Goedhuis, May 2022
When it comes to Soave, Pieropan is the pick of the bunch and was the first estate to make a single vineyard example. The 2021’s nose is brimming with fresh apple and lemon zest, while notes of marzipan and white flowers simmer underneath. On the palate, there is a wonderfully refreshing minerality that is balanced by flavours of ripe peach and a crisp acidity that lingers long after the wine has gone!
Soave produces Italy's second most famous white wine after Pinot Grigio. The region is divided intotwo distinct zones - Soave, comprising most of the alluvial plains, and Soave Classico, encompassing the higher reaching hillsides.The wine is made mostly (if not entirely) from Garganega, an aromatic, light skinned variety that when grown on poorer, well drained soils with lower yields can create wines with notable flavour and concentration. Though known mostly for its dry whites, a rare dessert wine is also produced called Recioto di Soave that is made from naturally dried grapes.
