Editor note: Still undeveloped, firm, polished and rather deep, fine, still a little smoky-reductive fragrance with yellow-fruity aromas, herbal notes, egg, hints of bacon and distinct minerality. Firmly woven, again completely undeveloped, tangy-juicy fruit, tart herbal aromas, a hint of liquorice and fennel, very fine acidity, some grip, intense minerality, smoky hints, blackberry nuances in the background, complex and deep, again a hint of egg in the background, very good to long finish with traction and emphasis at the same time. Needs days in the air at the moment to show approximately what it is made of.

The lifting of the ban on planting vines outside Italy by Emperor Domitian (51-96) by Emperor Probus (232-282) had a positive...

The white grape variety probably originates from Germany. There are more than 150 synonyms testifying to the great age and worldwide distribution of this vine in almost all wine-producing countries.
