Perfect example of true Soave Classico DOC since 1971 - Calvarino is situated in the heart of the Soave Classico zone. The name derives from ‘Little Calvary’ referring to the difficulties in working the land and the tortuously winding path to the bottom.
Grape variety: Garganega 70%, Trebbiano di Soave 30%
Vinification: hand-picked, often in two harvests to select the ripest grapes. Picking begins in mid-September for Trebbiano di Soave and in October for the Garganega grapes. The wine ages in glass-lined cement tanks for a year. During this period, it remains on the fine lees for increased richness and complexity. After bottling, it ages slowly in the bottle for a few months before release.
Tasting notes: Pale straw yellow colour, with greenish reflections when young; golden with ageing. The aroma is fresh, flowery with aromas of elder, lemon and cherry. The palate is dry, well balanced and elegant, with tremendous length and finesse.
Alcohol content: 12.5 % vol.
Food pairing: vegetable quiches, delicately-flavoured fish, shellfish and cheese soufflés.
Serve at 12-14°C
