A well-made light crisp fresh dry white from Italy. Better than most Pinot Grigio in this price range, a great everyday option.
By itself or with light fish dishes and shellfish.
Custoza (once Bianco di Custoza) is one of the lesser-known names from the Veneto in north-east Italy. I have always been very fond of its wines. They fall into a category that the Italians do very well; light and zesty whites to drink with fish. They prefer these to wines with too much aroma or flavour – sort of like a vinous squeeze of lemon to go with plainly cooked fish served hot or cold with a few herbs and maybe some olive oil.
