A crisp white with creamy weight, Castel del Lago employs Soave’s Garganega with a dash of Chardonnay. From vineyards overlooking beautiful Lake Garda, the grapes are well ripened, adding peach and apricot notes to this beautifully expressive white.

Beyond the Label
Creamy rounded peach and other stone fruit, with bright lemony zip
Castel del Lago is an exciting, super fresh white from Matteo Bernabei. Consultant for pricy top wineries by day, he has his own vines where, by night, he makes this gem. It features Garganega, the key grape of Soave, that naturally lends citrusy freshness. Grown on sloping vineyards that lead down to the lake (the largest in Italy) the grapes ripen really well. All that sunshine is reflected off the water back up to the vines. The soils help too – stony and well drained, they add to the fruity intensity. Matteo then adds a dash of Chardonnay and ages the wine several months on its lees, which lends a delicious creamy weight to its zip. It’s terrific on its own or with food. Matteo suggests serving with prosciutto and melon, fish or salads.
"Light and tasty and so so smooth! Perfect for alfresco sipping and light pasta dishes"
