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 opulent in the mouth and kept in good balance by a fresh acidity.

Production Notes

Late (excluding the Trebbianello variety, 5%). Harvest takes place in the first or second week of October in order to obtain a long (concentrated) phenolic maturation on the vine. The grapes are harvested by hand and a careful selection of the ripe bunches is
required when they are in a perfect condition. The grapes are fermented together to express the character of the territory to the utmost. Fermentation takes place cold, with a long period on the natural yeasts until May.

Producer Information

Gorgo Winery is a family owned company located in Custoza that was founded by Roberta's grandfather in 1970 as an investment and has been taken on by Roberta Bricolo. They are supported by a skilled viticultural team who have been with them since the beginning. The soils in the region are made up of pebbles and silt rich in calcium, which give the wines a distinctive mineral character.

She now owns around 50 hectares of vineyards, with full organic certification granted in 2018 for the wines made in their Custoza winery. The land is cultivated by hand and the wines are made in their own winery with the exclusion of the Valpolicella Ripasso. With a philosophy of cultivating typical and indigenous grape varieties but with careful protection of the environment, this innovative winery has earned a two Biccheri rating in Italy’s prestigious Gambero Rosso.

Their wines are firmly rooted in tradition with a modern and eclectic approach to production and their focus is to offer high value wines for everyday drinking.
