Rhine Riesling is a native grape variety in the Reno Valley, and has been grown in the vineyards of the Cembra Valley for decades. Illuminated by the sun on the sloping lands facing south, the grapes synthesise unique aromas, thanks to the thermal excursions of this alpine valley.
Ritratti Riesling has a straw-yellow colour tending to greenish and a delicate nose with the characteristic aromas of candied fruit and carob. It has a savoury, fruity and pleasantly acidulous flavour.
