Garganega is the indigenous grape behind Italy’s classic white with a global reputation. Fresh and flowery, this is a slice of summer all year.
This is an intensely flavorful and layered white with aromas of acacia honey, salted lemons, white rosemary, thyme, white pears and white pepper. Medium-bodied, sleek and concentrated, with a wild-herb edge to the fresh fruit. 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 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.
