The Pieropan family has been producing wines in the Soave region since the 1890s. From the 2015 vintage onwards, all Pieropan wines are organically certified. Calvarino takes its name, ‘little Calvary’, from the steepness of the slope and the difficulty this presents in working the vineyard. It is planted with Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave grapes. The Garganega gives structure and acidity to the wines, the Trebbiano di Soave perfume and richness of flavour.
Calvarino is a fresh and expressive wine with classic aromas of white flowers, almond blossoms and a touch of citrus. Rounded, ripe fruit is perfectly balanced by a fresh, clean acidity. Long and fragrant, it has a note of fine, almond pastry on the finish.
Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.
The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:
Light: You’re normally sensitive to things in general, such as changes in temperatures and loud noises. You are quite choosy with your wine tastes and have a preference for clean, delicate wines
Medium-bodied: You enjoy a wide variety of tastes, quite flexible with your choice of wines and enjoy delicate whites to full flavoured reds
Full-bodied: In life, you tend to be straightforward and decisive You enjoy intense flavours. A big and bold red wine would typically be your choice on the winelist.
Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
