Pieropan Le Colombare Recioto di Soave Classico 2011
This is a long-standing Pieropan family favourite and has been produced in the same way for generations. Sweet and unctuous - delicious with cheeses and desserts
On an estate that covers 30 hectares, the Pieropan Family have been producing wines since the 1860s. In the early 1930s they were the first to produce a bottle with the name Soave on the label. Nino Pieropan took over from his father in the 1970, and now his two sons, Andrea and Dario work with him on the sales and winemaking side respectively. This is a very traditional sweet wine made from dried grapes whose name derives from the shape of the carefully selected bunches of garganega grapes - 'recie' or ears.
Intense gold, almost amber coloured. Reminiscent of exotic fruits and apricots on the nose. Its initial impression on the palate is delicately sweet. This is a wonderful dessert wine which is perfect with almond-based dishes, simple pastries, fruit tarts, dried fruit and rich, blue cheeses. Traditionally suggested with Pandora di Verona.
