From: Italy, Veneto, Custoza DOC
Varietal: Garganega, Bianca Fernanda, Trebbiano Toscano (Organic)
Taste: Citrusy lemon meets honeysuckle and apple in this charming glass of white. The palate is soft and round with flavors of pink lady apples, lemon peel and peaches. The freshness and minerality of the wine lend a delightfully playful balance and structure, finishing with a lift.
Pairing: White fish like cod and trout might be an easy go-to considering this area’s proximity to water, and we highly recommend doing exactly that. For this time of year, we love dishes like Danielle Alvarez’ Roasted Lemony Fish with Brown Butter, Capers and Nori.
About: Roberto Bricolo started Gorgo back in 1973 with 22 hectares. Today it stretches over 60 hectares, almost all part of the “Bianco di Custoza” and “Bardolino” production areas. He runs the estate with the help of his daughter Roberta. The wines are fresh and direct, with a winning minerality, and have been widely recognized by Gambero Rosso and the rest of the Italian wine press.
Gorgo sits on glacial moraine just south east of Lake Garda, near the village of Custoza. The light textured soil of this area is typically whitish, and consists of rock fragments, pebbles, humus and silt rich in calcium carbonate concentration at high pH.
The vineyards are managed using traditional local methods including the use of organic fertilizers, and plowing of the vineyards. Harvest, which is almost entirely by hand, can stretch over 45 days to achieve full maturity.
