Pieropan's estate covers 30 hectares of vineyard, all of which are situated on the stony hills of the Soave Classico zone. The Pieropan family has been producing wines in Soave since the 1860s. Indeed, they were the first producer to bottle a wine with the name Soave on the label, in the early 1930s. Nino Pieropan took over from his father in 1970, and was the first to make a single vineyard wine, Calvarino, in 1971. Nino's two sons, Andrea and Dario, now work with him in running the estate. In 1999, the Pieropan family bought a property in Cellore d'Illasi, in the Valpolicella production area and planted it with vines.
This is the freshest, youngest wine in the Pieropan family range. It is made vineyards located in the Soave Classico zone and planted only with indigenous grape varieties.
