Manzoni Bianco Fontanasanta

2019

100% Manzoni Bianco, an early-20th-century crossing of Riesling and Pinot Bianco. Foradori organically farms and hand-harvests 3 hectares on clay-limestone soils in the Fontanasanta hills above Trento. Destemmed fruit with 3-4-day skin maceration; aged 8 months in acacia barrel, concrete and clay.

"The 2019 Foradori Manzoni Bianco Fontanasanta really excites all of the senses. Its luminous golden color shimmers in the glass, as a wild bouquet of crushed stone, lime and floral undergrowth reaches up. There’s tart citrus and salty minerals that sizzle, as ripe green apple and savory herbal tones gain momentum, growing in volume toward the finale. And then, its structure, which slightly dries out the experience toward the close, but tempts the imagination to wonder what else may come after a few years in the cellar. Thoughts of white Burgundy come to mind while hovering over this impressive glass of wine."
