The Wine
Brilliant and intense yellow with golden hints. Characterful wine, reminiscent of exotic fruit and nuts on the nose. Soft and persistent on the palate, with hints of spice, lenght and elegance. Makes an excellent partner to complex dishes, even with strong flavours particularly risottos such as porcini, or celery, squash and almond, salt cod and other fish including salmon, scallops and crab.

Four generations have worked at the Pieropan family estate since its foundation in 1890, each contributing something different depending on their generation, their knowledge and their entrepreneurial spirit. Viticulture and vinification began with Leonildo, a doctor in the small town of Soave, who, driven by his understanding of biology and chemistry began working in the family vineyards and cellars.

His sons, Fausto and Gustavo continued his work with great passion, but the turning point for the estate came with Leonildo, grandson of the founder who, with the force of his sense of vocation, carved out his own style. A belief in the central importance of the vine, an unceasing pursuit of quality and innovative winemaking processes are the key charactestics of the Pieropan identity.
