Recommendation: An outstanding buy
Winery/Producer: Leonildo Pieropan; Verona, Italy.
Grape Variety: 85% Garganega and 15% Trebbiano di Soave
Geographic Region, Appellation: Soave, Italy.
Price: $16 (with a 20% off “bargain bin” discount)
Purchased From: The Caviste, Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Pared With: Crab soup
He said: Very light wheat straw color. Light citrus aromas with floral hints. Refreshing crisp citrus and Granny Smith apple taste that is slightly creamy, and a finish with tart citrus and mineral. Very delicious Italian white that is loaded with character and is OUTSTANDING mid-palate through the finish. Good with the crab soup and very easy drinking when sipping alone.
She said: We always check out the discount bin in our favorite wine store and have never been disappointed. This Soave is no exception. Although it is not a bargain it was an outstanding wine. Short in aroma it was crisp at first taste and pleased the palate with a light body and creamy flavor that ended with a delicious finish heightened by a tad of tartness at the very end. There are many good wines available in the $20 price range and this is one of them.
