Rïes is a new release for Riesling at Vistarino estate.
In fact for the first time we have blend 3 different vineyards in Rocca de’ Giorgi in term to achieve our goal: an unusual Riesling rich in aromas and mineral taste. The total surface involved in this project is 7,5 hectares facing south-west at an altitude of about 400 meters. The soil is mostly calcareous (50%), clayey (35%) and sandy (15%). The average yield doesn’t exceed 70 q. of grape per hectare
The wine-maker stores the grapes just harvested in a special room at 4°C for 24 hours. Then he starts the temperature-controlled stainless-steel fermentation process and a soft ageing in bottle in term to preserve the freshness and the fragrance of the Riesling. Rïes is the direct fruit of the grapes. Enjoy!
