Monte del Frà Ca del Magro Custoza Superiore 2019

Verona, Veneto, ItalyMonte del Fra is located in Custoza, Veneto, in Italy's north east just outside Lake Garda. The current winery was founded in 1958, but the land it sits on was auctioned off by decree from Napoleon Bonaparte in the early 19th Century right out of the hands of its original owners, the local monks. The winery is now in the hands of the Bonomo family, which owns 140 hectares of land. This is a richer, honeyed, floral white wine grown at the 60+ year old Ca' del Magro vineyard. In the blend is 40 percent garganega, with trebbiano Toscano, tocai friulano, cortese, chardonnay, riesling italico, malvasia, and incrocio manzoni backfilling the rest. Quince, ripe pear, yellow apples, and honeysuckle spread across the palate before finishing with a hint of spice. Unique.Tasted: 20 November 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
