Elegant wine of good acidity, develops ageing pleasant notes of acacia honey that make it ideal for combinations with blue cheeses and dry pastries.

Perhaps, more than with the Cavalchina, the story begins with his grandfather Luciano; it was he who bought the first vineyards and then, in 1948, who built the winery that also housed a pomace distillery until 1967. The company was born as a game and a passion, an activity complementary to the main one of leather processing. Luciano was an eclectic person: he loved wine, but also lyric. This last passion of his led him to meet illustrious people, so much so that Maria Callas was his guest. His industry was among the few in Italy to manufacture football boots and this led him to also be a football player dealer. The stories of Luciano, Cavalchina and Custoza are linked and sometimes overlap. It was he who first, in 1962, decided to call the white wine of the area “Custoza”, he also sketched a first “recipe”: a wine obtained from the vines of Fernanda, Trebbiano and Garganega and led it to establish itself in the markets, then more important, of Rome and Milan.

Pairing Suggestions: This is an elegant wine possessed of a good acidity and with time develops a lovely acacia honey aroma. It is perfect to drink with spicy cheeses and dry patisserie.

Maturation: Bunches of grapes are harvested at the optimal maturation and put in small wooden trays and stored until they become about 40% dried. The skins are then removed and the fermentation continues in small oak barrels. As a consequence of the drying process the sugar content is very high and so the fermentation is very slow.
