Campo del Selese D.O.C.

D.O.C.

Campo del Selese wants to show the great ageing potential of Custoza D.O.C. thanks to its specific mineral character and flavor, then becoming a Custoza Superiore

In the rural tradition, "selese" ("threshing floor") used to be a small outdoor portion of the farmyard, paved with terracotta bricks, to be found in a place exposed to the sun all day long to dry cereals for winter time. Originally, Campo del Selese used to be the field ("campo") destined to the production of this wine, near the threshing floor ("selese").

Characteristics

Straw yellow color with golden motif.

Intense to the nose, it offers scents of apricot and Golden apple; citrus fruits and herbs in the finale.

In the mouth, it is exciting, full, savory and mineral with a slightly toasted note.

End September – begin October, when grapes are fully ripe
Vinification

Careful picking of the grapes. Once destemmed and crushed, a soft pressing takes place. Musts are then carefully cold decanted and alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks follows.

A part of Garganega ferments in French oak barrels and is then blended with the other varieties to settle on its fine lees for at least 12 months.

Pairings

Excellent with pumpkin tortelli and with all those dishes requiring a structured white wine.

We recommend to taste it in summer with grilled red meat, such as fillet or Fiorentina steak.
