Available for €14.95 from Searsons, Monkstown.

Fresh textured white with pear fruits and good cleansing acidity. Great served solo or with lighter seafood and salad dishes, possibly a prawn salad of some sort.

Custoza, a lesser-known neighbour of Soave, can be more reliable, possibly because there are fewer producers who have to try a little harder. They use the same grape varieties, mainly Garganega, sometimes with a little Trebbiano, to make attractive crisp refreshing white wines.

    Wine geek question: which version of Trebbiano is it?

    • admin April 2, 2016

      A very nerdy question. And the answer is I’m not sure! Some books mention Trebbiano Toscano, which is fairly neutral, but neighbouring Soave’s Trebbiano di Soave has been shown to be Verdicchio according to Jancis Robinson.
