Manna Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT

Dedicated to Maria Luisa, this unique wine was first released in 1995. It is a blend of Riesling, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Kerner and Sauvignon Blanc from five vineyards. The grapes are harvested and vinified separately. Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc ferment in barrique, the others ferment in stainless steel. The wines are then tasted and blended so that the final outcome is fully balanced. The wine ages ten months and then in bottle for a few more. A complex and layered nose, with notes of elderflower, pistachio and rose petals. It stands out for its concentration, combined with a soft elegance and a mineral backbone. Manna also has a considerable cellar life, thanks to the Riesling and Kerner.
