"#78 Top 100 Italian Wines of 2016!

A dense and layered white with sliced-apple, pineapple and honey character. Medium to full body, hot stones, bright fruit and a long and flavorful finish. So many peach and lemon undertones. A gorgeous wine."

92 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2014 Soave Classico la Rocca is a beautiful wine that should hold for the best part of the next decade. This is a sophisticated expression from the appellations with apricot, honey, saffron and slightly toasted oak aromas. The wine remains balanced and harmonious throughout, despite the difficulties of this vintage. Soft and luscious fruit flavors add weight and importance to the finish."

92 Decanter

"This is no ordinary Soave - Pieropan are one of the leading producers of high quality Soave Classico, and this example is a single vineyard expression from 100% Garganega grown on limestone. The nose has wax, almond cream and floral elements, while the full, round and intense palate has peachy notes with elderflower and mandarin coming through on the mid-palate. It has a mineral acidity that drives through onto the long finish. Delightful."

Product Description:

"Makes an excellent partner to complex dishes, even with strong flavours particularly risottos such as porcini, or celery, squash and almond, salt cod and other fish including salmon, scallops and crab.

The vineyard ‘La Rocca’ is situated on the Monte Rocchetta hill, just below the mediaeval castle built by the Scaligeri family in the town of Soave. The microclimate in this vineyard produces wines with a unique perfume and distinctive taste.

The grapes are picked when very ripe, often as late as the end of October, giving tremendous complexity and aromatic qualities to the wine, making it a wine of great breeding." -Winery
