FÓRRA Manzoni Bianco

This grape variety was created in the 1930s by Prof. Luigi Manzoni, Director of the Conegliano Research Centre, as a cross between Riesling and Pinot Bianco. Its characteristics include loose-berried clusters, thick skins, high acid levels and lower concentrations of sugar. Today’s increasingly extreme weather patterns accordingly make this grape variety very attractive for Alto Adige. By leaving the grape juice in contact with the skins for several days, we have been able to give the wine a still more striking profile.
