Gorgo – Custoza 2019

£11.75

A fascinating and delicious blend of 5 indigenous grapes are used in this quite outstanding wine. A perfect example of the principle of ‘one reaps what one sows’. As with biodynamics, when so much thought goes into a wine, it is unsurprising that the result is a success. A delicious white blend from Veneto.
