Cul d’Oro – Recioto di Gambellara Classico Docg.

A sweet wine made exclusively with Garganega grapes. The name of the wine refers to the place in which you can find the vineyard. This area is named “Cul d’Oro” because of the shape of the soil and the colour of the ripen grapes. The average age of the vines is 25 years. The selection of the grapes is made by hand and only the best bunches arrive to the winery. Cul d’Oro dries on the “picai” and ages in barriques. The colour of the wine recalls gold and we can smell ripen fruit. It is soft and balanced with almond aftertaste. It is fresh.
