AZIENDA AGRICOLA CORTE DONDA
Gambero Rosso said it very well in an article: environment and atmosphere at Azienda Agricola Corte Donda are reminiscent of 1900 movie by Bernardo Bertolucci.
We are at Viadana, halfway between Mantua and Parma.
A restored 1700's farmhouse with four hectares of land where, in addition to vineyards and farm animals, there are orchards and vegetable gardens. Most of the fruits and vegetables that end up in mustards are cultivated here.
Claudio Rizzi produces according to Viadana tradition, respecting all the steps of candying: hot sugar syrup over layers of fresh fruit cut in slices or cubes for three days, caramelization of the fruit in a casserole and mustard essence adding.
Fruit and vegetable mustards pair well with cheeses, with mixed boiled meats and with "his highness" the Culatello cold cut, besides being one of the protagonists of the Mantua pumpkin tortelli (fresh hand-made pasta).
