Production

Grapes are sourced from one hectare Fontanino plot of the 60 ha 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 classic Riesling with aromas of crunchy green apple, lime and a touch of lemongrass. The palate is fresh and incisive with lemon peel characters and mineral notes adding complexity to the finish.

Food match

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