Riesling is one of the world’s most famous aromatic grapes. In Italy, it excels in the north-eastern Alpine regions of Trentino and Alto Adige. Here, Riesling reaches its best when planted on poor Alpine soils, at altitudes as high as 1000 metres.
Riesling produces clean, sharp wines with racy acidity and refreshing flavours of white flowers, herbs and apples. The dominant variety in Trentino-Alto-Adige is Riesling Renano (Rheinriesling).
