The nose hints at tropical, for only a moment, before citrus zest, butter, rocks and minerals fill the senses. On the palate, I found a floral expression with citrus and herbs. The refreshing finish lingered for what seemed like a full minute.

Winemaker's Notes:

Pieropan’s estate covers 30 hectares of vineyard, all of which are situated on the hills of the Soave Classico zone. The Pieropan family has been producing wines in Soave since the 1860s. Indeed, they were the first to bottle a wine with the name Soave on the label, in the early 1930s. Nino Pieropan took over from his father in 1970, and was the first to produce a single vineyard wine, Calvarino, in 1971. The Calvarino vineyard has been in the family since 1901. Nino’s two sons, Andrea and Dario now work with him on the sales and winemaking side respectively. This wine is light gold in colour, with greenish reflections when young, becoming more golden in colour with age. On the nose it is perfumed and floral, with subtle almondy character enhanced by minerally, honeyed flavours on the palate. Very long and elegant on the finish.
