Pale straw yellow with greenish reflections. The nose reveals fresh and delicate notes reminiscent of vine flowers, cherry, elderberry. In the mouth, it is dry, savoury, pleasantly harmonious and balanced. Also very pleasant on the finish, long and expressive.

Leonildo, the doctor of the town (the general practitioner of today), started the family business due his passion for wine. “Calvarino” was the first plot of land where everything begun.

Leonildo’s sons Gustavo and Fausto continued the wine business with dedication and foresight.

In 1970 his nephew Leonildo, the only descendant of a large family, after having completed his studies in oenology and viticulture at the school of Conegliano (TV), brought profound changes.

He acquires new vineyards in the most suitable areas of Soave viticulture, introduces new technologies and compares his production with others discovered worldwide during his journeys. Together with his wife Teresita he shares the love for the land and the value of the tradition that has to be always preserved.

In a few years Leonildo became the best interpreter of Soave production and a point of reference for the national and international market.

The fourth generation, represented by his sons Andrea and Dario both graduates in agriculture and enology, after the painful loss of their father in 2018, continue the family tradition in the vineyards near Soave with the same love and passion of their forefathers.
