Consorzio Tutela Vino Custoza Doc | White Wines


Type: White wine

Disciplinare (regulations)

Custoza is a generous land, the surrounding landscape suggesting a cultural heritage to be discovered, and above all refined grape vines. In fact, it is not by chance that wine has always been an expression of the character of this piece of land.

Thanks to the climate that it enjoys where the terraces of these moraine hills are caressed by the gentle breeze from Lake Garda contributing to the creation of a soft, velvety, fresh and light wine.

The DOC is named after Custoza, a historical village in the Municipality of Sommacampagna.
The settlement was an ancient watch and guard station built in the period of the wars between Mantua and Verona in the 13th century, and which controlled the hills of the nearby Via Postumia from above.

Custoza DOC, according to the rules governing its production, is made mainly with native grapes such as Garganega, Trebbianello (local biotype of Tocai friulano) and Bianca Fernanda (local Cortese clone) to which can be added, in varying degrees, Trebbiano Toscano, Malvasia, Manzoni Bianco, Riesling, Pinot Bianco and Chardonnay. The vineyards of the hills and foothills exposed to the south and south-west on morainic soils are suitable for the production of Custoza.

All the grapes are vinified separately, according to different lengths of time and temperatures of steeping and fermentation in order to enhance their overall features.

Pairings Ideal and almost unbeatable with light starters, pasta or rice, tortellini and soups, white meat, fish salads, grilled vegetables and mushrooms.
