With the beginning of the new year we had the idea of highlighting two of our flagship wines (which this year also see the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the DOC) together with a local product, which due to current restrictions , perceive their territorialism as a “deficiency” rather than a virtue. Italy is a country rich in uniqueness and this has been known for a long time.
Today I want to talk to you about the Custoza Broccoletto, a well-known food in our geographical area, but this year the peoples will not see the 7th edition of “Broccoletto di Custoza in piazza“.
The producers’ association was founded in 2011, with the aim of protecting, guaranteeing and promoting the product and production techniques.
Today there are 9 artisans producers, located exclusively in the classic area of Custoza, where peculiar climatic and pedological predispositions allow to obtain an organoleptically unique product, so much so that since 2016 it has been a Slow Food Presidium.
I want to thank the president of the producers’ association Broccoletto di Custoza, Filippo Bresaola for the availability given.
All information can also be found on the official website http://www.broccolettodicustoza.it/ .
We are not here to give yet another recipe, but an excellent pairing that involves the iconic wines of our company.
Depending on the complexity of the dish created with Broccoletto, you may need an aromatic, fresh, balanced wine with a good sour shoulder, such as our organic Custoza DOC; while for dishes with a more intense character it is better to opt for a wine with more Mediterranean notes, enveloping and particularly structured, despite the low alcohol content, such as our Custoza Superiore DOC.
