In case you didn’t know “we went to Italy!” is an expression that gets chucked about quite a lot in Grape to Grain. Pieropan Soave Classico was one of the highlights of this little sojourn/buddy road trip across northern Italy. We could back this all day every day if we had the choice. With ripe peach notes with loads of white flowers and great minerality, we LOVE this wine and we know you will too!!

The Nerdy Bits...
The Trebbiano di Soave grapes were hand picked from mid-September, while the Garganega grapes were picked later in October. The grapes were destemmed and crushed, with the free run juice fermented separately between 14-18°C in glass-lined cement tanks. The wine remained on its fine lees for a period of time, which varies according to the vintage. In the spring following the harvest, the wine was bottled and then released after at least a further month in bottle.
