2018 SOAVE, Classico, Pieropan. Veneto, Italy (Half Bottle)
Alcohol Percentage: 12%
Size of bottle: 375ml
Area: Soave comes from the area east of Verona in north east Italy. It's one of many well-known names in the Italian wine industry that have been tainted by years of over-production and commercialisation.
The best vineyards are invariably those in the rolling hills classified as 'Classico' and in the last 10 years there has been an exciting quality revival
Grape Variety: 85% Garganega, 15% Trebbiano di Soave; fermented in steel and bottled in the spring after the harvest
Producer: Pieropan were pioneers amongst serious producers in the area. Even this, their 'normal' bottling, combines subtle richness and elegance with the clean, light structure that typifies the generic model for Italian whites
Cellar Potential: Drink within a year
Food Match: Versatile with any light dish
