Matteo Bernabei learned winemaking from one of the best in the business—his father is the legendary Franco Bernabei, aka the talent behind Italian icons like $100+ Fontodi Flaccianello. But Matteo has stepped out of his father’s shadow and is now earning HUGE acclaim for his own wines. We can’t wait for you to try his elegant Castel del Lago, which was rated 97 points by critic Luca Maroni.

Castel del Lago hails from the shores of Lake Garda in northern Italy’s Veneto region. Vineyards planted around the lake benefit from brilliant sunlight (reflected by the water) and cool breezes, which combine to help grapes ripen to perfection, while retaining freshness.

Matteo and his team hand harvested the Garganega and Chardonnay grapes for Castel del Lago in the cool of the early morning (another way to preserve freshness). In the cellar, Matteo allowed the wine to mature on its lees for several months, which imparted the creamy texture and increased flavor complexity.

You’re in for vibrant citrus blossom and nectarine aromas, followed by a creamy, luscious palate that bursts with tangerine, apricot and white peach flavors. This lovely white will make a delicious aperitivo, but Matteo suggests serving it with cold cuts, grilled fish or summer salads.

Our customers can’t get enough of classy Italian whites, and Matteo’s stunner is sure to sell fast. Order now to avoid missing out.
