    April 2, 2020 - Somewhat more muted than the full flavoured 2015.
    On nose: faint nose of minerals and apple skin.
    On palate: follow through of above flavours , with tart almond and lemon peel....light steeliness on palate....restrained....May flesh out with age.

    March 6, 2020 - Beguiling nose... some almonds, marzipan, melon, perhaps under-ripe pear.

    On the palate there is citrus and orchard fruit, but enveloped in a wonderful minerality; a richness that is not oily/unctuous but just full of depth, touch of bitterness.

    Excellent on its own, excellent with food, a superlative white wine.

    November 26, 2019 - A very nice wine for the price point. Has the body of more crafted wine with grape selection, but the crispness and minerality I want on the finish for Soave. Is great with risotto or other pasta fare with cream truffle based sauces. A favorite and lovely weeknight goto wine.

    November 12, 2019 - The standard Soave from Pieropan has been a go to wine for me in most every recent vintage. I was excited to open this bottling and it did not disappoint! A wine with great extract and intensity, the fruit was pear and golden delicious apple. Underlying herbal wood tones, nutmeg, some celery seed and a touch of sage, both on the nose. No evidence of new oak here, thankfully. The fruit was plush but the underlying acidity was welcome and fresh at the table. This rare commodity is well worth your attention.

    September 8, 2019 - For the price, an excellent drinker. Poolside sipper with great limestone and lemon tart acidity. Went with a variety of brunch fare extremely well. Finishes with good grip. Not overly complex but what it does, it does extremely well. Going to try to seek out a case of this.
