Riesling Pitzon Nals Margreid 2019
Nals Margreid е известен като един от най-добрите производители в Alto Adige. Този регион е дом на някои от най-ефирните бели вина в Италия. Характерни за Налс Марграйд са моносепажните вина, които показват типични за сорта характеристики, представени през местния тероар. Този Ризлинг произлиза от малко лозе югоизточно от Налс. Микроклиматът и почват се проявяват като отлични за сорта. Виното е с привлекателна свежест и изобилие от сочни аромати, които хармонично завладяват небцето.

Alto Adige (or Sudtirol for German-speaking two-thirds of its inhabitants) is located in northern Italy and borders Veneto to the east, Lombardy to the west and the Tyrol region of Austria to the north. Stretching to 47 degrees north latitude and altitude over 3050 meters, Alto Adige is a region with topographic and climatic extremes. The main wine-growing areas in the region follow the Adige river valley from Merano in the north to Trentino in the south and are planted both at the bottom of the valley and on its slopes, many of which are incredibly steep. Most wines from this region are produced by cooperatives which, due to the need for efficiency in harvesting, wine production and trade, have become known for their constant quality and reliable quantity. Nowadays, there is a tendency to increase the number of independent producers, which also gain a good reputation. The dominant local varieties are the red Schiava and Lagrein, the most common being Schiava (Vernatsch in German), which makes wine with a medium body, low alcohol and tannin levels and is often mixed with the denser Lagrein to give more depth and power of wine. The white varieties used in Alto Adige are the traditional German Muller-Thurgau, Sylvaner and Gewurztraminer, as well as the French Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Grigio. The Pinot Noir plantations have recently increased as well.More wines of this region
Riesling is an aromatic white grape variety that produces wine in the entire range - from botrytized sweet (one of the best in the world) to dry and semi-dry varieties, with captivating aromas of citrus and stone fruits, as well as the typical petroleum aroma, which in certain terroir appearances can dominate sensitively. Riesling's homeland can be said to be the valleys of the Rhine and Moselle rivers in Germany - the variety likes cooler weather. Naturally, here are the main wine regions of the country (Moselle, Rheinhessen, Rheingau, Pfalz). The vineyards are located on the steep hills, making mechanisation difficult, so here the viticultural activities are mainly manual. The wines from these regions are fresh and with a pronounced acidity. However, Riesling in Germany is by no means the main variety, in fact another is the wine region in which this variety is most common - and this is Alsace in France (or Elsaß in German). Unlike the German Riesling, the French Riesling is more saturated and lush due to the specifics of the microclimate there - the Vosges Mountains provide protection from northern winds and cold, and the sun is more generous in this southern region. Outside of these countries, perhaps Austria also presents itself with an interesting reading of this often called king of white varieties, and some countries of the New World successful experiment with it as well.More wines of the same variety
