Monte del Frá Ca del Magro Custoza Superiore 2015

Verona, Veneto, ItalyRicher, honeyed and floral, this is a lush blend of grapes from Verona's 55 year old Ca’ del Magro vineyard. In the mix is garganega, trebbiano toscano, tocai friulano, cortese, chardonnay, riesling italico, malvasia and incrocio manzoni. This spends 6-8 months on full lees in stainless steel to preserve bright acidity, which is needed to carry the sun-ripened weight of the grapes. Quince, ripe pear, honeydew melon, honeysuckle fills the expansive palate, remarkably slender at 13 degrees, to a warming gingersnap finish. Glazed duck, or pork would be a lovely choice.Tasted: 03 July 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 23.99 private wine shops Producer: Monte del FráDistributors: Patagonia Imports Ltd.
