Tasting Notes

In 1971, the steep Calvarino hill became the source of Soave’s first single-vineyard wine, still an icon of the region today. Elegant old-vine complexity, oyster shell breeziness and crisp citrus and orchard fruit, plus richer, more tropical tones on the long finish.

Score: 92

Bright straw. The intensely floral nose (buttercups, orange blossom, jasmine, peony) also hints at nectarine, peach and orange oil. Suggestions of cinnamon and cloves complicate the pomaceous orchard fruit flavors in the mouth. Finishes long and concentrated but much less mineral than other past vintages of this wine I am used to, and that I personally like better.
