Leonildo (Nino) Pieropan showed the world just how great Garganega can be. Nino recognised the importance of terroir early on, expanding the family’s hillside vineyards and creating his single vineyard wines, Calvarino in 1971 and La Rocca in 1978. Today, sons Andrea (viticulturist) and Dario (winemaker), maintain the family’s profound commitment to the terroir and tradition of Soave and, more recently, Valpolicella.
This wine has never been better and represents superb value for money. Very pale in colour. The nose is zesty, fresh and grassy with a hint of honeysuckle and some flinty minerality. Clean, melony and lemony on the palate. A supple rounded texture combined with racy fresh acidity. Absolutely ready and irresistible now. Farr Vintners
