Pieropan Soave Classico, 2018

This Soave Classico is 85% Garganega and 15% Trebbiano di Soave. It was a good match tonight for pasta with pesto.

Full lemon yellow color. Enticing scents of spring flowers and thyme. Medium bodied, full mouth feel. Fresh pears, almonds and lemon peel. Lively acidity; ripe but with a pleasant hint of bitterness on the finish. Pieropan sells for $18 to $20 a bottle, but I found this one for $13.99 at Costco. Even for the higher price, this is a very good value.
