From hand-harvested grapes from Agly Valley, some from late ripening vineyards planted at 500m above sea level.
The first single-vineyard wine produced in Soave in 1971, Calvarino is the name of a steep vineyard (200 to 300 m asl) in the Classico Soave area. The 30-60 year old Garganega and Trebbiano vines are grown organically on basalt-based soils.
70% Garganega , 30% Trebbiano di Soave
Syrah: An immediately attractive deep purple colour leads into aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, and coffee followed by a savory palate with a spicy smoky character and refreshing acidity. The balanced alcohol gives the wine a suppleness that makes it an easy drinker.
