Notes from David Bowler:
"Manzoni is a 1930's crossing of Riesling and Pinot Bianco, developed in the Veneto by Dr. Luigi Manzoni. Foradori works 5 hectares of this rare variety in the Fontanasanta vineyard at about 400 meters above the city of Trento, a few miles down valley from the Foradori estate in Mezzolombardo. The vines are 15 to 35 years old and grow on clay-limestone soils. Like all Foradori wines, the wine is classified as IGT Vigneti delle Dolomiti."
