Monte Del Fra Ca Del Magro Custoza Superiore 2013 £14.95
The Ca’ del Magro vineyard is over 40 years old and is around 7 hectares in size. It lies in the beautiful hills of Custoza, a small hamlet in the commune of Sommacampagna, situated south-east of Lake Garda.
Part of the vineyard is planted with old vines of noble indigenous varieties, using Veronese Pergola training and with very low yields of around 2 kg per vine. The remainder is planted with Guyot-trained Garganega vines, selected and propagated from historic clones.
This gives us an aromatic dry white wine that appears yellow, with pale green highlights in the glass. On the nose you get blasted with wild flowers, Golden Delicious apples and exotic fruit. On the palate it is dry, tangy and full- bodied, with a long aftertaste. All round it is a good bottle of wine.
