If you think winemaking is easy this name will correct you. Calvarino means ‘little Calvary’, a hint at the crucifying work of growing grapes on this steep hill with its winding path. But it produces a complex, restrained wine that surprises you with its almond blossom scents, and persistent fruit. Go for grilled fish drizzled with olive oil and fresh vegetables.
