Pieropan Soave Classico Calvarino 2018
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Soave Classico|
Brilliant straw yellow color with greenish hints. The delicate nose is reminiscent of almond blossoms and marzipan. Good depth of fruit on the palate, nicely balanced by a zingy acidity that enhances its long length.
This wine makes an excellent partner for soups, starters, especially vegetable based such as asparagus, peas, courgette, egg-based dishes or seafood and fresh water fish dishes. It is an excellent aperitif, especially when served with simple canapés.
The 2018 Soave Classico Calvarino lifts up with a rich yet perfumed display of musky peach, apricot and dusty yellow florals. It’s silky in texture, contrasted by mineral-tinged orchard fruits and hints of green citrus. This turns savory and even salty through the finale, tapering off to hints of ginger and spice. The 2018 Calvarino is already very easy to like, but it would also benefit from a few years of cellaring.
