Nina Manzoni Bianco 6.0.13 DOC Piave

The white vines used by Ca’ di Rajo to make wine are Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Gewurztraminer and Incrocio Manzoni 6.0.13 (aka Manzoni Bianco). The winery’s focus is on freshness and high drinkability, two characteristics that all these wines have in common.

The grapes are picked when they reach their optimal maturity, paying special attention to the choice of the harvest time to try and preserve the typical acidity and aroma of each vine. This leads to the production of modern, fresh wines with the right strucutre.

In particular, Incrocio Manzoni is a hybrid variety made with Pinot Blanc and Riesling Renano, created in the 1930s by Prof. Luigi Manzoni, a professor of viticulture at the Wine School of Conegliano.

It has found its natural habitat in the area of Marca Trevigiana and is capable of expressing its character with high levels of structure and elegance. This grape, unlike others, is left to overripe on the plant; this promotes a natural concentration and development of aromas, generating a more strutcture, complex wine.

To enhance the properties of the vine, wine is made in steel tanks at controlled temperature followed by a long ageing period in contact with noble lees.
