This single vineyard Soave comes from one of Pieropan’s top vineyards and is derived from low yields and attention to detail throughout the entire procedure from vineyard to vinification. Calvarino became a cru or single vineyard wine in 1971 and was one of the very first single vineyard Italian wines. 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 Calvarino is pale straw yellow in colour, with youthful green hues when young, turning golden with ageing. Fresh, floral aromas with elderflower, lemon and cherry. The palate is dry, well balanced and elegant, with tremendous length and finesse.
