"A very classic Soave with fresh-peach and candied-citrus notes. The balance between moderate acidity and creamy ripeness on the medium-to full-bodied palate is spot-on. Bright, slightly mineral finish. Screw cap." (JS)

Winery Notes:
This is the freshest, youngest wine in the Pieropan family range. It is made entirely from fruit grown in their own vineyards situated in the Soave Classico zone and planted only with indigenous grape varieties.

Approx. 85% Garganega, 15% Trebbiano di Soave (the latter is part of the Pieropans’ effort to safeguard ancient native varieties that have lately been neglected by most growers) from southerly exposed hillside vineyards and clayey/tuffaceous, prevalently calcareous soil; brilliant straw yellow, greenish hues; ample, delicate nose of almond and cherry blossoms, elderberries and lilies of the valley; complex and structured on the palate, with good acidity, silky texture, pleasingly bitter finish.
