"ISIDOR" Manzoni Bianco IGT, Vignaiolo Fanti (2017) - Trentino Alto Adige
Grape : Manzoni Bianco.
Pressano. Incorcio Manzoni is a cross breed between Riesling and Pinot Blanc grapes that was created in Italy during the 1930s. From Pinot Bianco, the wine gets its round, full body and plump fruit characteristics; from Riesling comes lifting acidity and a tendency towards minerality. The combination of those attributes creates an incredibly attractive style of wine that most closely resembles Chenin Blanc, or perhaps Sémillon. Concentrated, full bodied, ripe, orange-peel-scented. There are also aromas of smoke, some earthy spice, a little bit of tangy green apples, light waxy tones, a hint of sandy earth and a touch of ripe golden currants. A very lovely, pure and mineral white showing wonderful harmony between more delicate character and quite impressive power.
Food pairing: High acidity making it easy to be paired with almost all food items. You can enjoy the flavour of the wine with roasted cheese with thyme-infused stuffing, sheep’s milk cheese, salted dishes, sushi, roasted vegetables, grilled halloumi. "
