Pieropan Soave Classico la Rocca 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

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.The wine was first made under this label in 1978.

Pieropan's 2008 Soave Classico La Rocca emerges with hints of ash, spices, dried apricots and flowers, all of which are woven in a rich, textured fabric of inimitable class.

Tasting Notes:

soft and persistent on the palate, with hints of spice and vanilla

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.The wine was first made under this label in 1978.

Notes: At the end of fermentation, the wine is racked into barrels of between 2000 and 500 litres capacity where it ages for around a year. During this period, the wine remains on the fine lees where is acquires complexity and a rich bouquet. It is held in bottle for some time before release.
