Description

Garganega is traditionally used in Soave from this part of the world (Castelforte is a fusion of the Italian words for castle and fort in honour of the walled town of Soave). This one has fleshy, full-textured flavour; think juicy, soft pear juice dribbling off your chin. Full-bodied, almond, citrus, peach, vanilla and a fresh, clean finish. A cracker, with real depth and character and horribly underpriced!

Additional information

Casalforte

Casalforte is Cantine Riondo Winery’s premium line and represents the finest interpretation of the winemaking tradition of the territory to which it belongs. The line includes DOC and varietal wines from the Veneto region, elegant and full-bodied wines that pair perfectly with the most complex and sophisticated dishes of Italian and international cuisine. The name is a tribute to the typical 'casali' (farmhouses) found on many of the winegrowing partners’ estates, who have been skilfully tending their land for countless generations with the 'fortitude' of spirit and passion that has always distinguished them.

Production

Careful selection of grapes with high sugar content, brief cold maceration, gentle pressing of the grapes followed by a fermentation at 18°C and fining on the lees in stainless steel and then stored partly in wood casks for three months.
