Description

Leonildo (Nino) Pieropan showed the world just how great Garganega can be. Nino recognised the importance of terroir early on, expanding the family’s hillside vineyards and creating his single vineyard wines, Calvarino in 1971 and La Rocca in 1978.

Calvarino 5 is the first wine from the "Vini dell'Anima" collection. Born from a project by Leonildo Pieropan and his sons Dario and Andrea, it is a blend of five vintages of Calvarino (2008-2009-2010-2011-2012) aged for at least 10 years in cement in the cellar. From Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave grapes, Calvarino 5 is the authentic expression of these vines, from volcanic soil. Savory and it opens into a aromatic herbs and long flowers. Composed, elegant and persistent, with a dry flavor, long on the finish. A Mediterranean wine at heart and with great longevity. A unique and unrepeatable wine, produced in a limited edition.
