Riesling Abbazia di Novacella 2021

The Riesling of the ancient Abbazia di Novacella is a fresh, young and easy-drinking white wine. The vineyards are located in the basin of Bressanone, an area characterised by soils composed of permeable moraine deposits that give flavour and minerality to the grapes. The colour is straw yellow with greenish reflections due to the brief refinement in stainless steel, while the bouquet is layered with citrus notes followed by scents of white flowers. The taste is delicate and fruity, reminiscent of white-fleshed fruit, the sip ends with an intense sapidity

Perfect for young and medium bodied white wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
