Producer

Gorgo was established in 1973 in the village of Custoza. Originally only 22 hectares, the estate now stretches over 60 hectares in the ‘Bianco di Custoza’ and ‘Bardolino’ production areas. The estate is owned and managed by Roberta Bricolo with a skilled viticultural team who have been in place for nearly 30 years. All the wines are hand crafted and of very high quality. The light, white soils of the region are full of pebbles and silt rich in calcium which gives the wines a distinctive mineral character.
Tasting Notes
This fantastic Custoza Superiore is made from late harvested grapes giving fantastic concentration and a bright gold colour to the wine. The bouquet is intense with orange blossom and jasmine aromas. Full and round, the palate has intense notes of dried mango, lemon curd, ripe melon, peach and apricot. Silky and oppulent in the mouth and kept in good balance by a fresh acidity.
Food
Serve with shellfish, tuna carpaccio or chicken dishes.
