We last reviewed Pieropan’s Soave in its 2016 edition. The 2018 vintage? Much the same, boldly tropical and full of fruit, and for me this year, a distinct note of peaches and cut flowers that evokes viognier, not specifically the garganega from which Soave is made. A bold melon note on the finish is more iconic of the wine region, though a sour grapefruit note on the finish adds some bite.
