Calvarino is situated in the heart of the Soave Classico zone and is the ancient cornerstone of the family’s vineyards, bought in 1901. The name derives from ‘Little Calvary’ referring to the difficulties in working the land and the tortuously winding path to the bottom.
Pale straw yellow, with greenish reflections when young; golden with ageing. Fresh, floral aromas with elderflower, lemon and cherry. The palate is dry, well balanced and elegant, with tremendous length and finesse.
It makes an excellent aperitif and partners a wide range of dishes, especially vegetable quiches, delicately flavoured fish, shellfish and cheese soufflés. Grapes: 70% Garganega, 30% Trebbiano di Soave.
