The Custoza was formerly known as "Il vino delle dame" (The Wine of the Ladies). A summer wine favoured by Italian noble ladies on Lake Garda, a favourite due to its fruity freshness. To date, the Custoza Val dei Molini has lost none of its popularity - a straw-yellow white wine, which is very harmonious and balanced.
NoseA rich, full-bodied wine with flavours of honeydew melon and other tropical fruits. The finish is delightful, with a pleasant length.
PalateWe find tender herbal notes and nuances of tropical fruits.
The grapes are harvested from 15 to 20-year-old vines in vineyards located in Sommacampagna in Custoza. They are then fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks with partial malolactic fermentation. 90% of the wine is aged for 5 months in stainless steel tanks whilst the remaining 10% is aged for 5 months in 10hl barrels.
