The Calvarino vineyard, purchased in 1901, was the historical nucleus of
the estate. This cru, made from 70% Garganega and 30% Trebbiano grown on
volcanic soil, produces a refined and elegant Soave with mineral driven fruit
and a chalkiness reminiscent of fine Chablis. The crisp fruit (green apple,
citrus and stone fruit) preludes a fine and complex palate with piercing clarity
and a long finish. First made in 1971, Calvarino has a track record of a long
cellar life, up to 15 years, in the finest vintages.
