The 2019 Soave Classico Calvarino opens slowly, yet time in the glass reveals a pungent mix of lemon oil and wet stone, offset by an enriching note of almond paste. This is elegant, with medium-bodied weight nicely contrasted by brilliant acidity and zesty green citrus tones that build tension. The 2019 Calvarino finishes long and lightly structured, leaving the cheeks puckering, as hints of kiwi skin and minerals fade. There’s a seriously bright future here. In 2019, the Calvarino production was reduced by 30% due to frost. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2022)

Moderate ( + ) intense aromas of white stone fruit, grape, lemongrass, honey blossom and some tropical notes (unripe pineapple), stones.
Dry palate, with a high acidity, medium bodied palate with a pronounced intensity and linear mineral backbone. Great performance considering the price
