Amedeo Custoza DOC Superiore
Amedeo Custoza DOC Superiore is a white wine product produced by Cavalchina winery from 40% Garganega, 30% Fernanda (Custoza clone), 15% Trebbiano and 15% Trebbianello (Friulano clone). The name of this wine refers to Prince Amedeo of Savoy, who was wounded in 1866 during the Third War of Independence at Cavalchina, as attested by the slate memorial on the company's entrance. The different maturation period and the different nature of the grapes that go to make up the Amedeo lead to a harvest in different periods. Once they arrive in the cellar, Fernanda grapes are cooled down to -10/-12 °C, then brought back to about 0 °C and crushed with the stalks, in order to maintain all the semi-aromatic notes which are typical of this grape. The distinct personality of Garganega gives the typical mineral hints to wine. After a static clarification, grapes' musts ferment at 16-17 °C for about 2 weeks. The frefinement on fine lees is fundamental to achieve the desired quality level, then the cuvée is ready for blending.

Cavalchina is the name of the district where the winery is located, probably after the residence of the Conte Cavalchini. It is on the southeast border of the Garda amphitheatre dating from the end of the Ice Age. The Azienda Agricola Cavalchina was created in the early 1900s with the purchase of the first vineyards. Later the cellar was built and originally included a distillery, which was in use until 1967.
