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. A clean vein of minerality runs through the wine adding a sense of balance and proportion. The rich creamy finish rounds things out quite nicely. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018. -Antonio Galloni

There's a subtle richness to this wine set in a refined frame that supports apple tarte Tatin allspice almond paste and lemon curd flavors. Delicate acidity enlivens the wine and leaves a mouthwatering impression on the smoky finish. Drink now through 2013. 2916 cases made. -AN

The wine opens with a rich golden color and aromas of mature fruit and peach. Now is the right moment to drink this wine. M.L.

This 100% Garganega is clean and well-balanced on the palate-all parts moving together in a cohesive way. The sour fruit pair wells with the honeyed notes as the texture itself feels honeyed in the mouth. From the start through to the finish the wine is supported by a chalky mineral-driven acidity. Bright and alluring as an aperitive the Pieropan La Rocca will also work wonderfully with summer salads and slightly spicy fusion foods.
