Custoza DOC is a white wine produced in the Veneto region, in the province of Verona, from grapes of the Trebbiano toscano, Garganega, Tocai friulano, and other varieties. It is characterised by its freshness and light aromaticity, its easy drinkability and versatility in pairings.
It is first and foremost a territorial wine, since, on the one hand, it takes its name from a small historic village located in the municipality of Sommacampagna, a town on the morainic hills between Lake Garda and the city of Verona, and on the other hand, because it is a proper expression of the territory in which it was conceived.
It presents itself as a pleasant and fragrant wine, to be drunk young in order to fully appreciate its freshness.
Overall on the palate the wine is balanced, medium-bodied, velvety, fresh and easy to drink because it is accompanied by good acidity.
Custoza is often characterised in the finish by some herbaceous notes and a bitterish aftertaste tending towards almond.
The colour is a straw-yellow that sometimes veers towards greenish reflections.
It goes well with shellfish and mollusc dishes, seafood first courses, fried and baked fish with aromatic herbs.
