Nice way to wind down from a game of football. Proper Soave! It’s from Pieropan, and it’s the single vineyard Calvarino bottling. Soils are volcanic, with vines trained in a traditional Veronese pergola. Yields of 60 hl/ha are quite generous, but the wine doesn’t lack intensity. It’s fermented and aged in glass-lined cement tanks, with extended lees contact.
Pieropan Soave Classico Calvarino 2008 Veneto, Italy
12.5% alcohol. 70% Garganega, 30% Trebbiano di Soave. Soave with personality. Quite a full yellow colour, this wine is concentrated with flavours of pear, citrus, citrus pith and nuts. It has quite a bold character to it: there’s plenty of flavour, as well as nice freshness and a bit of grip. Good acidity and bone dry. A useful food wine. 90/100
