Albino Piona Custoza 2011
25-30% Garganega, 25% Trebbiano, 20% Tocai, 15% Cortese, Riesling italico, and Pinot bianco, 15% Chardonnay. Bright straw-yellow color with greenish reflections. Very fragrant with aromatic notes. Savory, round, delicate, full-bodied, and dry but without harshness. Ideal and almost unbeatable with light appetizers, pasta or rice, tortellini and soups, white meat, seafood salads, or grilled vegetables and mushrooms. Albino Piona was founded in 1893 in the Bellavista neighborhood, on the uppermost hills of Custoza which offers a broad panarama of the surrounding area and Po Valley. Piona also owned a famous restaurant called "Trattoria Bellavista" which was closed in 1978 so he could focus solely on wine production. And, in 2005 the company moved to Villafranca and built a new winery there, undergoing a total modernization in the process. The Villafranca region lies along the southeast shore of Lake Garda, Italy's largest lake, and is characterized by morainic hills with glacial deposits and stony soils mixed with granite. Albino Piona currently has a total of 200 acres of vineyards, with 9 of them in Custoza, and is dedicated to producing wines typical of the morainic soils. The 2011 Custoza comes from a blend of white grapes, following the product specification of the D.O.C. of 1971.
