TASTING NOTES
Our Custoza has a straw yellow color with greenish highlights. It displays a complex, broad and forthright bouquet, thanks to the skilful blend of Trebbiano and Garganega varieties. At first, notes of almond, cherry and acacia blossoms; then Golden Delicious apple, cling peaches and fresh almonds against a mineral background. The sensation that lingers is fresh and dry. On the palate one finds yet again a subtle yet precise and perfect layering of fruity flavors, while the acidity hints at citrus fruits, citron and grapefruit in particular. The finish reveals an appealing tangy, palate-cleansing character.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS
Ideal as an aperitif or, alternatively, as an accompaniment for hors d’oeuvres, risottos, soups and fish dishes, in particular whitefish cooked in butter, grilled cuttlefish, tench or sole poached in white wine. Serve at 10°C (50°F).
