Review

Baroque, classy, a unique breed wine, La Rocca is the flagship wine of the Pieropan company.

Beautiful bright golden yellow. The nose is expressed in an overwhelming vortex of fresh and clean aromas: citrus notes of grapefruit and cedar, ripe exotic fruit, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, honey sensations, lavender flower, lily of the valley, sage and toasted notes of vanilla. On the palate the exuberance of the nose is confirmed; it is a round, hearty, full, vital, fresh wine, with pleasant sapid mineral hints. In perfect balance, it closes very persistently with a very long balsamic and toasted trail.

It goes well with complex dishes such as risotto with porcini mushrooms, Vicenza-style cod, dishes based on salmon, lobster, scallops and crabs.
  • Optimum serving temperature:Between 6ºC and 8ºC

Un vin rare

J’ai découvert par hasard le Soave Classico de Pieropan: c’est mon médecin italien qui m’en a parlé. Aussi, quand j’ai pu en avoir quelques bouteilles, je me suis précipité dessus. Le conseil était bon. Ce vin sec et lumineux au goût d’amande et de noisette, d’une fraîcheur extraordinaire, est un véritable délice. La bouteille ouverte, difficile de ne pas la terminer entre amis autour d’une assiette d’écrevisses ou d’une pissaladière.

Soave complexe

C'est un Soave qui est différent de la plus part des autres vins de la région. Il est complexe en bouche et va encore s'améliorer apres quelques années en cave.

Classico good. La Rocca good but expensive

Though I must say that the Soave Classico is in my opinion not as good as the 2014 the La Rocca 2016 is almost as good.The classico is still good value and the La Rocca is still too expensive.

Probably one of the best Soaves out there

Unlike the blant and boring Soaves you are used to this one is definitely special and worth trying. Ripe, round and complex with intense flavours and actual concentration of flavours

SUPERB WINE

Beautiful colour of golden sunshine leads to a remarkable consistency of smooth, dry and earthy flavours. Excellent quality. Dispatch and delivery reliably prompt.

Pieropan

Pieropan

The untimely death of Leonildo Pieropan, in April 2018, could only highlight the central role that the winery of that amazing visionary had in the revival and consolidation of the Soave image. A volcanic area of exceptional potential, which thanks to the Pieropans made its way from Veneto to the world. Innovation, at the Pieropan's, was based not only on a modern and agile conception of Garganega, but also on the recognition of Soave as a great cru wine, of long refinement...
