TOP 100 - LA GUIDA AI VINI DI VERONA 2022
Gruppo Editoriale ATHESIS
CUSTOZA DOC 2020 - Line: Albino Piona - Score: 92/100 - 1st PLACE
Another success for Piona, a winery true to its identity and wine philosophy. Lovely pale straw yellow hues with striking green nuances that light up the glass. A wonder of white-fleshed fruit including pear come to the fore immediately on the nose, segued by citrus on white grapefruit, then thyme and sage to close a bouquet of refined crafting. A taut, tasty mouth is nicely intense and takes pride of place at table with its full flavour. An able ambassador of this district that will continue to surprise.

The Piona family legacy is an authentic love of winegrowing. It all began in 1893, the year a visionary, ambitious great grandfather – Albino – began to lay the foundations for a project that continues even today. He then handed over the reins to his son Silvio, who worked hard to pursue success, managing the family restaurant and winery. In honour of his father, Silvio called his son Albino, who later became president of the Consorzio di Tutela del Custoza from 1990 to 2001. The younger Albino, who died recently, chose to devote himself entirely to wine production, closing the restaurant after just a few years, and starting a long modernization process. Thanks to the introduction of state-of-the-art machinery and cutting - edge technologies, the winey was able to develop and expand, acquiring over 45 hectares under vine between Sommacampagna, Valeggio, Sona and Villafranca. Today, Albino’s offspring Monica, Alessandro and Massimo, follow in the footsteps of the three previous generations who led the business over the years, and have chosen to focus on a top-quality product, investing in a short production chain and environmental awareness.
