Antistiana Incrocio Manzoni
This is the fourth harvest of the Incrocio Manzoni, a little-known variety in our country that Joan Milà “discovered” and fell in love with on one of his many trips to Italy. This is a variety called Manzoni Bianco or Incrocio Manzoni, originally from the province of Treviso. In fact, it is a cross between Riesling Renano and Pinot Blanc carried out by Professor Luigi Manzoni and which was one of the most interesting results after a series of different cross-tests, carried out in the middle of the 20th century. with the aim of identifying new grape varieties that could complement those already existing in the Veneto area.
This variety stands out for the complexity provided by pinot blanc and the aromatic strength of riesling. Well-crafted wines result in complex, aromatic wines with a great ability to age. It’s a matter of trying it out!

A spectacular fusion of Mediterranean countryside and Atlantic character in a wine that surprises with its deep balsamic freshness and extreme elegance. The Incrocio Manzoni shows in this captivating and enigmatic wine by bewitching wine palate from the first sip, enveloping it in fruit and white flowers, aromas of rosemary and waves of saltiness. Land, sea and air combined as fundamental elements for an essential wine. (Xavier Nolla)
