The true standard bearer among the Treviso-area white wines, Incrocio Manzoni Bianco is a cross between White Riesling Renano and Pinot Blanc.

It appears an intense, luminous straw-yellow. On the nose, elegant notes of Pinot Blanc are the first to emerge, flanked by impressions of pineapple and spring flowers, while the crisp, tangy minerality of Riesling stands out on the palate. Its graceful aromas and its pronounced delightfulness on the palate make this wine a must-try with warm seafood appetizer.
