PIEROPAN, 'CALVARINO' SOAVE CLASSICO 2021
*online prices/offers might differ from prices at Vino Cultura cellar.
Calvarino is situated in the heart of the Soave Classico zone and is the ancient cornerstone of the family’s vineyards, bought in 1901. The name derives from ‘Little Calvary’ referring to the difficulties in working the land and the tortuously winding path to the bottom. The first label was released as far back as 1971 and the wine is a perfect exemple of true Soave.
