The Calvarino vineyard is in the heart of the Soave Classico zone and represents the core of the ancient family estate, bought at the beginning of 1900. The soil here dates back to the tertiary era and is rich in clay and tufaceous basalt which give the wine an attractive savoury, mineral quality. The name ‘Calvarino’ derives from ‘Little Calvary’ reflecting how difficult the soil is to work and the tortuous path which winds from top to bottom. The label was first released in 1971 and is symbolic of the most traditional, most characteristic wine from the Soave area.
Pale straw yellow, with greenish reflections when young, golden with ageing.
Fresh, flowery with aromas of elder, lemon and cherry.
Dry, well balanced and elegant, with tremendous length and finesse.
