Cà del Magro – Custoza Superiore DOC

DENOMINAZIONE DI ORIGINE CONTROLLATA

The hill is in the heart of Custoza, it is gravelly and rocky, facing southeast and ready to receive many hours of sunshine. The vineyard is composed of old vines, accustomed to challenge the elements of nature and to go deep in the soil to find their nourishment. This is a fascinating, unique place, ideal to witness how Custoza wine has inside all those features, necessary to have a great wine, such as minerality connected to a unique soil; longevity which stems from the resilience capacity of old vines with a low yield, but featuring character and style; experimentation, that is the will to undermine the dominating thought asking for a simple Custoza, to drink young and without complexity. The result? The most amazing Custoza, the most awarded in the world, the most celebrated. A great white wine with infinite ageing potentials.
