Pale straw yellow, 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. Soave Classico Calvarino has an extra degree of fleshiness that is typical of this bottling. The wine just oozes personality and territory with firmly etched mineral notes (derived from heavily volcanic soils) that leave a fine, dusty patina in the mouth. Pair this delicious wine with the most sophisticated seafood dished created in Southeast Asia that encompass delicate, but fragrant flavors and lemongrass. It also makes an excellent aperitif and partners a wide range of dishes, especially vegetable quiches, delicately flavoured fish, shellfish and cheese soufflés.
Four generations have worked at the Pieropan family estate since its foundation in 1890, each contributing something different depending on their generation, their knowledge and their entrepreneurial spirit. Viticulture and vinification began with Leonildo, a doctor in the small town of Soave, who, driven by his understanding of biology and chemistry began working in the family vineyards and cellars.
His sons, Fausto and Gustavo continued his work with great passion, but the turning point for the estate came with Leonildo, grandson of the founder who, with the force of his sense of vocation, carved out his own style. A belief in the central importance of the vine, an unceasing pursuit of quality and innovative winemaking processes are the key charactestics of the Pieropan identity.
