Pieropan `Ruberpan` Valpolicella Superiore 'Vigna Garzon', Veneto, Italy 2014

The Pieropan family has been producing wines in Soave since the 1860s. Indeed, they were the first 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 running the estate. In 1999, the Pieropan family bought a property in the Valpolicella production area and planted eight hectares with vines, now increased to 20.

Ruberpan is made from fresh grapes rather than the traditional dried or ripasso styles. The wine aged in wood, some in barriques and some in casks, for 30 months. It then spent a further 12 months in bottle before release.

Brilliant ruby red in colour. The bouquet is full of typical cherry and strawberry fruit. The palate continues with complex layers of beautiful fruit notes and finishes with a spicy character. Ready to drink now but also has the potential to age well.

Perfect with starters such as stuffed pasta, or tomato sauces, particularly good with roast poultry, grilled meat, game birds and mature cheese. Serve at 14-15° C.
