RIESLING RENANO 2017
ITALIAN FINE WHITE WINE
The Riesling Renano is a 2,000 year old typical grape from Central Europe. Since the Napoleonic age, it has found its best terroir in Oltrepo’ Pavese. Today only a few hybrids of the original vines still grow in Oltrepo’ Pavese, and Giorgi’s are more than 40 years old.
The vineyard is located at the top of the hill, where a consistent difference between day and night temperatures gives to these grapes a high acidity level. The soil is made of clay, and these two environmental features characterize the IL Bandito Riesling Renano D.O.C. with marked freshness and sapid sensations.
The maceration on the skins allows an extraction of the polifenolic parts, which characterize the typical Riesling Renano bouquet, and gives an elegant pale yellow color to the wine. During the soft pressing only the first press wine is selected for the alcoholic fermentation: the high quality of the wine is incomparable.
The result is a full body white wine with an elegant and wide bouquet, and with a lingering fresh aroma that pleases the palate and calls for another sip. The Riesling Renano D.O.C. IL Bandito is the winner of the Due Bicchieri Gambero Rosso and the Due Stelle Veronelli awards.
