White wines

Custoza D.O.C.

D.O.C.

Custoza wine originates from a blend of white berry grape varieties, autochthonous in the area of Verona, in conformity with the 1968 D.O.C. laws.

Among Italian D.O.C. white wines, Custoza is a peculiar one, as it is made with a blend of different grapes giving it that special freshness and aromatic complexity, distinguishing it from varietals.

Characteristics

A bright straw yellow color with green motif.

Intense to the nose, you may smell white fleshed fruit, pear and citrus fruits, such as white grapefruit.

Notes of thyme and sage complete it all.

In the mouth, it is mineral and delicate, delightful, dry, but not sharp.
