- Place of production, aging, service temperature: Hills of Conegliano Veneto. Aged in stainless steel. Serving temperature 8-10 degrees.
- Uniqueness: In the country with the highest number of native vine varieties, the peculiarity is that it has been built through a crossing (pinot bianco and riesling renano) which determined a new native wine on the Italian national territory.
It is the result of the work of prof. Luigi Manzoni, headmaster of the oenology school of Conegliano from the 30s to the 50s, who obtained this wine from the crossing between the Rhine Riesling and the pinot bianco (although in someone's opinion, instead of the pinot bianco it was used, entirely or in part , Chardonnay). This crossing, called IM 6.0.13, or simply Manzoni or manzoni bianco, has in fact created a native vine variety of the province of Treviso. It is vinified both in purity and in assembly with other vine varieties above all for the good dose of acidity that it can bring. For this reason, in addition to Veneto, it is often present in many areas of the peninsula (Friuli, Trentino, Sicily).
