The 2016 Calvarino has a pale straw yellow color, with greenish reflections when young and golden with ageing. Fresh and flowery aromas with notes of elder, lemon and cherry. The palate is dry, well balanced and elegant, with tremendous length and finesse.

Wine AdvocateThis wine celebrates its 45th anniversary (1971-2016) with this vintage. The 2016 Soave Classico Calvarino (a blend of 70% Garganega and 30% Trebbiano di Soave) is a beautifully bountiful and exuberant wine that bursts forward with stone and exotic fruit, with crushed oyster shell at the back. The wine delivers abundant complexity and depth, and this puts it into a category of its own as far as Italian white wines are concerned. Some 55,000 bottles were made.
