Pieropan Calvarino Soave Classico 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

“The 2009 Soave Classico Calvarino has an extra degree of fleshiness that is typical of this bottling. Succulent peaches, pears, flowers, mint and spices are woven together beautifully. The 2009 is poised and centered, yet also wonderfully expressive from start to finish. This is a dynamite effort from the Pieropan family. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019…94.” WA 2/12 "From a hillside of 30 to 60 year old garganega and trebbiano di Soave vines, this wine is aged in glass-lined cement tanks, developing substantial richness from contact with the fine lees. It's smooth with fresh cream and orange zest flavors, chalky and round. An elegant white for roast cod...90" W&S 08/12 "There's a fine, minerally salinity to this, with an overall sense of finesse to the sleek acidity and finely woven flavors of yellow apple, melon, almond cream and lemond curd that show a hint of honey. Lovely now, but should open up more with a little age. Best from 2013 through 2020...91" WS 08/12
