Country: Italy

Pieropan Soave from the Veneto region of north-east Italy is one of the best and most consistent examples of this wine type. The grapes used are Garganega and a little Trebbiano which are fermented in stainless steel tanks. The Pieropan vineyards are on hills above the plain where many Soave wines are made and this extra elevation seems to be one factor which sets them apart. The other factors are good vineyard management and winemaking technique.
Pieropan also make a wood-matured Soave called La Rocca which we think is a very fine wine.
There are three fine makers of Soave that we follow: Pieropan, Pra and Inama.
