Monte del Frá Ca del Magro Custoza Superiore 2016

Verona, Veneto, ItalyA darker yellow colour previews a floral, vibrant, honeyed nose stemming from a rich blend of grapes from Verona's 55-year old Ca' del Magro vineyard. The mix involves garganega, trebbiano toscano, tocai friulano, cortese, chardonnay, riesling italico, malvasia, and incrocio manzoni, and the result is splendid. Post ferment, it spends 6-8 months on full lees in stainless steel, adding a creamy texture and preserving the acidity required to off-set the richness of the fruit flavours. Look for honeydew melon, quince as well as some citrus cutting into the back end of the wine to keep it fresh on the palate. Ready to drink with chicken, pork or fresh fish.Tasted: 24 July 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 21.99 BCLS Producer: Monte del FráDistributors: Patagonia Imports Ltd.
