The grapes were grown in the vineyard of 'La Rocca', which takes its name from the adjacent medieval castle and fortress ("La rocca") that dominate the town of Soave, just east of Verona. The soil in La Rocca is unique in Soave in that it is a limestone outcrop (the same soil as in Valpolicella Classico) in a sea of basalt. 'La Rocca' is golden yellow in the glass, with intense, concentrated perfumes that follow through to the palate. Classic La Rocca aromas of almond essence and honey lead to an elegant and beautifully balanced palate, with notes of vanilla and almond kernel, ripe apricots and exotic fruit. The long finish has a light mineral edge. Winemaker's notes (Jul 2018)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Pieropan

Founded in 1890, four generations of the Pieropan family have worked at this estate. They were the first family to bottle wine with the Soave name on label. Initially founded by Leonildo, a doctor from Soave, it is now his grandson who runs the estate with his sons Fausto and Gustavo. The 30 hectare estate is situated to the east of Verona, in the heart of the Soave Classico zone, and is predominantly planted with Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave.
