Custoza was the site of two crushing defeats in the Italian Wars of Independence at the hands of the Austrians. However, Custoza’s white wine is an Italian winner every time. A peachy, floral, refreshing and slightly saline blend of Garganega, Trebbiano and Trebbianello produced just south of Lake Garda. Some people argue that Trebbiano and Trebbianello are the same thing, but we and Cantina Ronca’s eco friendly winemaker says they are different (the former being Ugni Blanc used in Cognac and the latter being a relation to Sauvignon Vert). But why argue? It is definitely not worth going to war over the independence of Italian grape varieties when they taste this good
Between Custoza and Bardolino, lies the territory of Sommacampagna. This historical area with its sweet and gently rolling hills form the backdrop to the Ronca winery, whose vineyards are gently caressed by the mild breezes coming from the nearby Garda Lake and characterised by the strong minerality of the Morenic hills. The Ronca family cultivate their estate grown grapes for the production of DOC wines typical for the Garda territory, such as, Custoza, Bardolino, Chiaretto, as well as the IGT wines Garganega, Corvina and Spumante Champenoise method. Trebbianello, Garganega and Trebbiano Toscano grapes are harvested separately according to their optimal ripening period. No oak, only stainless steel, makes this a refreshing and crisp drop.
