Story of the wine:
Garda is a new DOC created for an area just south of Lake Garda. Pinot Bianco is grown all over the north east of Italy and has been here since the early part of the 19th century. The use of French varietals in northeast Italy dates to the period when the Hapsburg dynasty ruled this region in the 18th and 19th centuries and introduced them along with the named single varietal philosophy. This wine is from the La Prendina estate, which is under the same ownership as the Cavalchina estate in Custoza.
Grape(s): 100% Pinot Bianco
Area: From two vineyards, Paroni and Casina on the La Prendina estate in Mozambano near Lake Garda.
Pinot Bianco is a much under-rated variety and in the hands of a brilliant winemaker such as Luciano Piona it shows just what it is capable of achieving. Made from the family vineyards just south of Lake Garda. An absolutely delicious blend of citrus fruit and balancing acidity that shows just how good the Pinot Bianco variety can be.
