2019 Cantine Borga Manzoni Bianco
Manzoni Bianco was created in the 1930s by crossing Riesling and Pinot Bianco, In 1924, Professor Luigi Manzoni set out to cross various grapevine varieties at the Viticulture and Oenology School of Conegliano, in the Veneto, in order to create new grapes that would either replace or complement existing varieties grown in the local Piave region. Although most were unsucessful, the cross between Riesling and Pinot Bianco grew very well in Conegliano and Valdobbiadene and was soon accepted by local winemakers. As it was the only successful experiment commercially from Prof. Manzoni, the varietal then took on the name of "Manzoni Bianco".
Bright straw yellow with gold reflections. On the nose, the recognitions are typical: nuanced aromas, citrus fruits, yellow peach, acacia flowers, rose petals and wisteria, and a veil of minerality. The taste is satisfyingly balanced, enveloping, supported by pleasant freshness and flavor.
