2009 Pieropan Soave Classico Calvarino

Feb 2012 Antonio Galloni 94

The 2009 Soave Classico Calvarino has an extra degree of fleshiness that is
typical of this bottling. Succulent peaches, pears, flowers, mint and spices
are woven together beautifully. The 2009 is poised and centered, yet also
wonderfully expressive from start to finish. This is a dynamite effort from
the Pieropan family. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.

2009 Pieropan Soave Classico la Rocca Pieropan

Feb 2012 Antonio Galloni 92

The 2009 Soave Classico La Rocca opens with an attractive bouquet framed by
subtle hints of oak. Sweet apricots, honey and jasmine are all beautifully
layered in the glass. The open, textured finish is immensely appealing.
Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.
