2011 PIEROPAN Soave La Rocca 75cl (Veneto, Italy)
Style - Rich
Grapes - 100% Garganega
Tasting - Yes, that will be the most expensive Soave you have ever seen! At the height of its powers after eight years in bottle. It's flat out gorgeous. At once zesty and rich with tones of almond paste, confit lemon, nectarines, apricot jam and the peppery edge of its volcanic mineral soils.
FYI: With more than 30 vintages made of this wine the Pieropan's are rightly revered as the original flag-wavers of this oft-abused Denominazione.
