Traditionally, it was obtained by bleeding the Bardolino grapes with the aim of giving the red wine more body, increasing the skin / must ratio. The claret produced in this way, however, lacked freshness since the time of harvest of the grapes suitable for Bardolino foresees a lower acidity in favor of more sugars and polyphenols and also the aromatic expression was penalized by the inability to clarify the must before fermentation since the bloodletting involves waiting for the raising of the hat, that is, the start of fermentation.
Now the grapes destined for claret are harvested two weeks earlier than that destined for red wine and after a 12-hour pre-fermentative maceration at a temperature of 8/10 ° C, the must obtained by natural draining is clarified for static settling and then fermented for 10/15 days at a temperature of 17/18 ° C. The malolactic fermentation is inhibited and after a short stay on the lees it is bottled in the months of December / January.

Cavalchina is the name of the district where the winery is located, probably after the residence of the Conte Cavalchini. It is on the southeast border of the Garda amphitheatre dating from the end of the Ice Age.
The Azienda Agricola Cavalchina was created in the early 1900s with the purchase of the first vineyards. Later the cellar was built and originally included a distillery, which was in use until 1967. By the 1960s the Piona family felt that the white wines of Custoza deserved better recognition than simply being labelled as Soave. From 1962 they were the first producers to label their white wines made from Fernanda, Trebbiano and Garganega with the Custoza name and to promote the name in key markets around Italy such as Rome and Milan.
