2012 Pieropan Soave Classico (Elsewhere $15)

SKU #1145983 91 points James Suckling

 A fresh and steely white with sliced apple, pear and lemon rind character. Medium to full body, bright acidity and a clean and fresh finish. One of my go-to whites from Italy. Drink or hold.  (12/ 2013)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Luminous and crisp, the 2012 Soave Classico is a tight and tonic white wine that portrays elegant mineral tones next to light shadings of peach and citrus. It is beautifully balanced and elegantly tempered, but also shows restraint and a somewhat timid side. The crisp acidity brings it alive in the mouth. After a long day tasting for this report, this is what I bought back home to pair with my favorite Chinese take-out. Drink 2013-2015.  (10/ 2013)

As my introduction to Soave several years ago, the Pieropan is still making a delicious, light, refreshing, mineral driven wine. Lime pith comes through on the clean finish finish.

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
