Winemaker Notes: 

"Sergio caught the Riesling bug during work trips to Germany. Serious Riesling is a fairly new thing in Italy, and when Germano planted the grape in Cigliè he had no idea how well it would do. He just knew he loved the variety and wanted to see how it would come out. The experiment worked: the soils are limestone-rich, the altitude provides excellent fresh acidity, and year by year the 'Herzù' ('steep' in the dialect of the village where it's grown) shows more and more clear Riesling character. John Winthrop Haeger, in his excellent book about dry Riesling called ‘Riesling Rediscovered’, described the Herzù as ‘a classy wine with strong flavors and bright acidity.’

The wine shows hints of lime-peel, wet stones, and flowers, with a faint hint of the gasoline aroma that is so varietally typical. It drinks well young, but I will certainly be cellaring this for a few years. Bottled with a screwcap for freshness."
