How it's made

Grapes are sourced from one Fontanino plot of the almost 150 acre Il Cascinone estate in the Monferrato area of north-west Italy. The Riesling grapes were planted in 2002 on an east facing slope and are grown in the coolest vineyard sites, where they can ripen slowly. After pressing the juice is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and spends 4 months on fine lees before being bottled.

Tasting Notes

A fine, delicate dry white with classic. Riesling aromas of lime, petrol and a touch of lemongrass. The palate has lively citrus and stone fruit characters balanced by crisp acidity and mineral notes. Fine and complex on the finish with the ability to age.

Food Match

Great with fish, chicken, crisp salads or pork dishes.
