Custoza is the selection of Cantina di Custoza that captures the best of its production in every single bottle. A Cru as the French word conveys: excellence, the best of territory and harvest. The Vineyards are positioned according to the best orientations, on soils that highlight the fruit and the subsequent result in the glass. Custodia Bianco Superiore is a harmonious blend of Trebbiano Toscano, Tocai Friulano, Garganega and Incrocio Manzoni, aged in oak vats and a few months in the bottle, the perfect measure of the territory's energy in a definition of taste that clearly outlines the land of Custoza.

A reassuring balance accompanies the pleasure transmitted by a good, healthy wine that does not venture conjectures, but that reveals itself with the aromas and flavors of grapes and an area where the winemaking vocation is the central point from which the Custodia experience moves. The lake and its microclimate are essential for understanding the taste, an evocative drink of Garda lake: a floral, fresh and enveloping emotion, a tactile mouth of Mediterranean smells and memories.

Excellent as an aperitif, fantastic with a first course of fresh homemade pasta. We tasted it with tortelli stuffed with ricotta and lemon, seasoned with melted butter flavored with sage leaves.
