Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT
A vine crossing named after Professor Luigi Manzoni born from the union between Riesling and Pinot Blanc. From its parents Manzoni bianco inherited the advantages of both: good body, aromaticity, longevity and an adaptability to various vineyard soils and climate conditions. The resulting wine has an intense aroma of white flowers and fruit with a hint of spicy notes. After a few years of aging in bottle, it shows typical aromas in a manner similar to an aged Riesling and, like Riesling, it is an early to mid-ripening grape variety.
