Cavalchina Bianco di Custoza DOC, Veneto, Italy

Cavalchina Bianco di CustozaThe four different grape varieties mature at different times: Trebbianello in early September, Fernanda in mid-September and Trebbiano and Gargenega at the beginning of October; this means that we vinify each variety separately.

The manually harvested grapes are destemmed and pressed. Only Fernanda, with its semi aromatic qualities, is macerated for a few hours before pressing. Each must, after being clarified, is fermented for 10-15 days at 180C. There is no regular malolactic fermentation and the yeasts, which are regularly stirred, are not removed until January/February when the final cuvée takes shape.

A straw yellow shines through the glass with some green tones; slightly aromatic to the nose, it unfolds generously in the mouth with great balance and flavour. It is a versatile wine, perfect with aperitif, fish, white meats and, at the top, with the “Tortellino of Valeggio”.

40% Garganega, 30% Fernanda (clone di Custoza), 15% Trebbiano, 15% Trebbianello (clone di Tocai)
