The Manzoni white grape, known also as Manzoni Cross, is a clone of Rhein Riesling and Pinot Blanc. It was created in the 1930s by Prof. Luigi Manzoni, then the dean of the Enology School in Conegliano.
The grape clusters, somewhat sparse, are composed of smaller than average grapes with a thick, consistent skin, yellow-colored tending toward the green.
The grapes are harvested by hand in small boxes. They are first stemmed and subsequenty pressed lightly. The ensuing must is thereafter fermented at low temperatures in steel containers.
The wine is fine and delicate, with an excellent body and structure. It is straw yellow in color. The nose is aromatic, subtle and elegant, with tones of peach, apple, and tropical fruit, with a flowery bouquet. The taste is savory and mineral. It is ideal as an aperitiv wine and as accompaniment to appetizers, pasta dishes, soft cheeses, fish, shellfish, and white meats.
This wine, ruby to violet in colour, is rich in tannins, intensive in colour, harmonious and tangy. It has a light note of violets as well as to aromas of forest berries, fresh cherries and plums.
The Chardonnay is characterized by classy opulence with many exotic fruits in aroma and taste along with delicate, delicious toasty aromas. The complex bouquet brings to mind apricots, coconuts and bananas. Extract and acid form an attractive balance, the taste is round, and equally strong and fine, with velvety fruit and well-integrated tannin. A complex, elegant Chardonnay with enormous storage potential. Grape varierty: 100% Alto Adige Chardonnay.
This dry, fresh white wine has a pleasant fullness and a strong yellow colour. It is vigorous, with very delicate scents of exotic fruits, ripe gooseberries or apples.
