Custoza Superiore DOC white wine is born among the Morainic hills and the eastern shore of Lake Garda, the same as our Custoza DOC, finds its origins in the village of Custoza, a small hamlet in the municipality of Sommacampagna, already famous in Roman times, as a reference point on Via Postumia, a consular road which connected the two main Roman ports in the north of Italy, and protagonist of many bloody battles between the Italian and Austrian army. Here we find a huge ossuary to commemorate all the fallen soldiers, which can be visited today. This wine is obtained from selected grapes of Custoza DOC (Garganega, Chardonnay, Tocai, Fernanda and Trebbiano) with a lower yield and harvesting starts at the end of October. After a maceration on skins at low temperature for about 24 hours, fermentation takes place in steel tanks. A part of the wine ages in steel casks and the other in barriques for about 8 months, thus obtaining a still white wine of a beautiful straw yellow colour with golden reflections, which gives its fancy name "Riflesso" (Reflection). The Custoza Superiore DOC is harmonious, velvety and full bodied with hints of vanilla and ripe fruit. We suggest to match it with shellfish or smoked fish.
