Sensory impressions
A delicate, pale yellow colour with magnificent silvery hues, it has an extremely fine, harmonious and rich nose, redolent of icing sugar, sweet almonds, tropical fruit – banana in particular – and custard. A wine with a good structure, vivid freshness and balanced intensity: the palate is pleasantly mineral, and the finish clean, vibrant, with a delightfully bitter hint of almond.

Serving temperature
6-8° C.

Recommended food pairings
Custoza honours all egg recipes, which are notoriously difficult to pair. Its true personality, strong and original, emerges after 1 or 2 years of cellaring, when it becomes the perfect match for sushi or pasta with shellfish sauce.

Best consumed young (within 1 to 2 years).
