Custoza 2019, Monte del Fra, Italy
A super easy drinker from Lake Garda; a great alternative to good Pinot Grigio.
Why drink Pinot Grigio when there’s Bianco di Custoza? Italy is such a treasure trove of grapes and regions, it’s a shame that many classics get overlooked in favour of the ubiquitous PG.
Hailing from Lake Garda in the Veneto, this wine is a blend of grapes - in this case Garganega (the main grape in Soave) supported by Trebbiano Toscano and Friulano. It is clean and zesty with some melon and stonefruit notes.
Super-easy to drink, it makes a great aperitif for summer gatherings. Good with shellfish and sushi.
