Shared these two w/ Susan Fri night:

Corte Gardoni "Greoto" DOC: Custoza (Garganega/Trebbiano/Trebbianello/Cortese/Manzoni Bianco; 12%; L.19 110; KermitLynchImprts) Corte Gardoni di Piccoli Valeggio sul Mincio/Veneto 2018: Med.gold color; lightly floral/carnations/perfumed talc light chalky/stony bit lemony/grapefruity rather aromatic quite attractive nose; fairly tart some lemony/grapefruity lightly floral/carnations/gardenias light stony/chalky/perfumed talc flavor; very long/lingering floral/carnations/gardenias light chalky/perfumed talc finish; not a profound white but quite a pretty white that reminds a bit of Riesling, some of Arneis. $17.00 (KK)

A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Greoto is a rather weird blend. The Trebbianello grape is also known as Sauvignonasse, also known as SauvignonVert or Friulano in Friuli. I thought it quite a pretty Italian white.
