Foradori, Fontanasanta Manzoni Bianco, Vigneti delle Dolimiti, Italy
The hill overlooking Trento, with its clayey-limestone soils, welcomes the Manzoni Bianco and matures the grapes in late September. The character of the Fontanasanta vineyards is expressed through this hybrid, born of a mix of Riesling with Pinot Bianco. Its ability to evolve overtime requires patience; Fontanasanta Manzoni
Bianco is a wine that really comes into its own at least three years after harvest.
Fontanasanta, Trento hills, 5 hectares. Calcareous clay soils.
Fermentation and fining: Fermentation on the skins in cement tanks, followed by 12 months of aging in acacia casks
