Winemaker Notes

This dessert wine is obtained from the shrivelled "recie" ("ears" in the venetian dialect) of choice Garganega grapes, the top part of each bunch, with the ripest and best exposed berries. The bunches are laid out on traditional straw mats, in well aired room for few months.

In early spring, the semi-dried grapes are pressed, and the resulting wine is aged in oak barrels for two years. Intense gold, almost amber coloured, delicately... View More

Critical Acclaim

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

Made from garganega grapes that are air dried then fermented and aged in oak for two years, this is beguiling in its rich balance of savory and sweet, a compelling, intensely structured dessert wine. Initial flavors or smoked apple and spiced plum shift with air, becoming white peach and apricot, with an edge of minerality. The best part is the finish, which feels like it could last forever.

The Wine Advocate

The 2004 Recioto di Soave Le Colombare is Garganega that is air-dried for several months prior to being vinified and then aged in French oak. This sumptuous dessert wine flows from the glass with honey, flowers, dried figs, apricots, candied orange peel and a multitude of aromas and flavors that engage the senses in stunning style. Le Colombare is a great wine to match with cheeses. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2014.

This is another strong showing from Pieropan, one of the reference-point producer for the wines of Soave.

In the heart of the old town is the winery of Leonildo and Teresita Pieropan, which goes back to 1860. The present Leonildo ("Nino")'s grandfather, Leonildo Senior, founded the estate and 'invented' Recioto di Soave, a concentrated dessert wine applying a system similar to Tuscany's governo to the indigenous, white Garganega grape.

Today, the estate's 74... View More
