Passito della Rocca by Pieropan wine was born as an experiment of the company to create a 'sweet wine' different from the Venetian tradition. It was produced only for a limited period from 1988 to 2008 and there are only a few examples, which are part of the 'Family Collection'. It is one of the many gifts that Leopoldo Pieropan wanted to bequeath: this passito wine has been thought, planned and 'pampered' for more than 10 years, and is to be savored in great meditation to enjoy its remarkable finesse, harmony and elegance.
The cellar Pieropan has the merit of having made the world aware of the Soave and his land as a synonym for great wines. In fact, it is the exasperated attention and selection of the best grapes, which are born all the wines of the winery Pieropan: assisted inseparable Teresita, Leonildo Pieropan demonstrated in the difficult years that it was possible, thanks to the work and to the respect of the vineyard, get results considered unreachable. The wines produced are distinguished by the style and to be authentic expressions of the territory and of the man who produces them with love and dedication. The Soave lands, strictly hills with very old vines, mostly trained by the pergola, giving great importance to Pieropan cellar.
The privileged position of the screws and the unconditional love with which Leonildo the care, makes the wines of essential and unique Pieropan for the concreteness of their style.
It is not easy to maintain such a profile over the decades, but anyone who has been lucky enough to taste a Soave Pieropan of over twenty years of age knows the evolutionary possibilities of the wines of this area, which in the bottles of this wine are one of greatest expressions. The same obsessiveness is also found in young red wines of Valpolicella (Ruberpan and Amarone), a new project that has enriched the Pieropan cellar.
