2012 Pieropan Soave Classico (Elsewhere $15)
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.
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.
