Le Colombare Recioto Pieropan 2017 (50cl)

£30.00

Pieropan’s estate covers 58 hectares of vineyard which are situated on the stony hills of Soave Classico. The Pieropan family has been producing wines in Soave since the 1890s. Indeed, they were the first producer to bottle a wine with the name Soave on the label in the early 1930s. From the 2015 vintage onwards, all Pieropan wines are organically certified.

We visited the estate in 2010 during my wine tours based in Verona.  Hosted by Andrea Pieropan, we visited the beautiful cellars, amid the oak barrels, barriques and Slavonian oak bottes, and were taken past the racks where the grapes destined for their Reciotos de Soave and Amarone de Valpolicella dessicate, up to the roof terrace for the stunning views of the vineyards and town.

This Recioto di Soave has an intense gold colour with perfumes of dried apricots and lightly toasted almonds. The wine has a perfectly balanced palate, with just the right level of delicate sweetness offset by fresh acidity. Lovely, rich, almost exotic fruit comes through on the palate, with a baked peach character and a long, perfumed finish.
