Riesling

simply complex

#intensity #minerality #complexity
Intriguing, intense, edgy, with all the tang and fragrance of a citrus grove in the sun, with a sharp acidity and the dusty notes typical of the soil the roots drive deep into. A unique wine, with a Mediterranean soul and an eye on the North, it is in perfect harmony with the mineral origin of the earth it springs from, the earth that prepares the grapes for their journey from the vineyard to the bottle.
