Pale straw yellow, with greenish reflections when young; golden with ageing. Perfume: The aroma is fresh, flowery with aromas of elder, lemon and cherry. Tasting notes: The palate is dry, well balanced and elegant, with tremendous length and finesse.

Gooseberry and apple pie on the nose and palate with white flower petals and a fascinating rose-water, almost turkish-delight note. Full, round and very silky with fresh acidity driving the complex flavors. Long, tight and so focused. Saline aftertaste. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

So spicy, yet also rich, the 2020 Soave Classico Calvarino impresses with an alluring mix of ground ginger, lime zest, minty-basil and wet stone. It envelopes the palate in silky textures while also bombarding it with salty mineral tones and a sour twang of green apple. While supremely elegant, the 2020 is also full of nervous energy, as it finishes long with tropical floral nuances and a bitter tug of lemon rinds. Readers can certainly enjoy the Calvarino today, yet it needs some time to come fully into focus.
