PIEROPAN Soave Classico 2019
(Soave Classico, Veneto, Italy) $19
The delicious limey freshness of this wine is off-the-charts—a sensation that’s like drinking icy cold water from a mountain stream. And limey only begins to tell the story. There are bursts of juicy mandarin orange, starfruit, and minerals. If what you think about– when you think about a good Italian every night white wine—is pinot grigio, then you have to taste this fantastic (and far superior) wine. For decades, the Pieropan family have been considered the top producer of Soave Classico; they were the first there to make single vineyard wines, for example. And the current vintages of their single vineyard Soave Classicos “Calvarino” ($34) and “La Rocca” ($40) are stunning. But for sheer flavor per penny, nothing beats this wine.
