    • "Montiggl" Riesling Alto Adige DOC 2019

      “Montiggl” Riesling Alto Adige DOC 2019

      Montiggl Riesling is an extremely elegant wine. The German's favourite vine has found the ideal terroir in parts of South Tyrol. Riesling makes high demands on the location and prefers a cool, but very sunny climate. This is exactly what Montiggl offers. The porphyry soils there give it fruit, minerality and an ideal acid backbone. SUPERIORE.DE

    • Vinschgauer Riesling Alto Adige DOC 2018

      Vinschgauer Riesling Alto Adige DOC 2018

      Riesling is the speciality of the Pratzner family: bright straw yellow with golden reflections. Subtle nose of flint, some lime, white flowers and with salty hints. On the palate, a precise acidity that vibrates finely on the tongue, then pulls the wine taut and fresh into the long, juicy final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, rich lemon yellow. Shy, albeit multi-layered nose, of wet stone, candied lemon, dark minerality, reverberation of flowers, also white peach. On the palate mainly salty and juicy, racy acidity, very precise, with salty melt, with pressure, dry finish." Falstaff

      "If you've got your hands on some fresh crab meat or other catch of the day, you'll want to reach for this beautiful wine. The Falkenstein 2018 Alto Adige Valle Venosta Riesling reveals chalky lemon notes, tropical fruit, toasted nut and just a touch of the petroleum that is often associated with this elegant grape. The wine shows exacting varietal purity, with perhaps a bit more emphasis on the orange zest and citrusy notes that I associate with Riesling from the far north of Italy. Crushed mineral and chalk play supporting roles." Robert Parker

    • "Eruzione 1614" Riesling Terre Siciliane IGT 2016

      “Eruzione 1614” Riesling Terre Siciliane IGT 2016

      In the history of Etna, the eruption of 1614 is legendary because it lasted ten years and is the longest recorded eruption of the volcano, which is still active today. A very impressive and fitting name for Planeta's Etna series of equally impressive wines.

      Riesling from Etna? Initially an experiment, admittedly. But it can truly be described as a success: the newest scion of Planeta's Etna family with delicate pale colour with green reflections; in the nose with a great variety of aromas, such as white apple, plum, lemon and yellow flowers. Perfect, dry on the palate, with mild acidity, fine minerality and (especially with increasing maturity) pronounced fruitiness. SUPERIORE.DE

She then brings these refined wines in small editions as "Private Reserve" to the selected trade and gastronomy, thus proving the impressive ageing potential of her 10 months of wines matured on fine yeast. Sparkling, intense straw yellow. Interwoven and dense nose of juicy yellow vineyard peach, with hints of apricot and balm. On the palate very convincing fruit-acid play with much tension and depth, in the finish an impressive minerality. SUPERIORE.DE

      “Pétracine” Riesling Langhe DOC 2019 (BIO)

      The pioneer of Riesling on Italian soil is Aldo Vajra. Fascinated by the variety even as a student, he planted the first vines of the White Riesling variety in the Langa. Very pale yellow-green when young, which develops into a strong straw yellow. The aromas of the noble Pètracine also take a varied course. Beginning with peach and apricot, delicate floral and citrus notes follow in his food, while with increasing ripeness, minerality comes to the fore. On the palate it is harmonious and precisely structured, almost austere, fascinatingly complex and long. Great ageing potential! SUPERIORE.DE

      Franz and Bernadette Pratzner planted their first Riesling grapes more than 30 years ago. The small plot results in just 1,500 bottles per year. The primary rock soil, the dry warmth during the day and the cool nights offer excellent conditions for the Vinschgauer Riesling to thrive in a steep southern location between 550 and 900 metres.

      Brilliant golden yellow. Aromas of peach and apple combine in the bouquet with a well dosed portion of minerality. On the palate complex and multi-layered with yellow fruits, spices and lime. The harmonious overall picture of this exceptional wine is framed by a vibrant acidity and beautiful freshness, which will ensure a long life and further refinement in the bottle. Blessed is the one who can get hold of a few bottles of it! SUPERIORE.DE

    Things to know aboutRiesling 

    Riesling is often referred to as the queen of white wine grape varieties. Although there are only just over 50,000 hectares of it worldwide, it is one of the very best varieties, the "Cepages nobles".

    Almost half of the Riesling vineyards worldwide are located in Germany. Riesling is the most important grape variety in German viticulture. We have almost 150 synonyms, the most common being Weisser Riesling or Rhein-Riesling.

    Riesling is also widespread in northern Italy. Here he is called Riesling Renano. The best known come from South Tyrol, especially from the Vinschgau, the Eisack Valley and the upper Etsch Valley. Here it was introduced in the 19th century, mostly by winegrowers who had practiced in the Rheingau, on the Moselle or in the Wachau. There are currently around 100 hectares in South Tyrol. The Vinschgau Rieslings in particular can often compete with German or Austrian specimens, although the style is completely different.

    RIESLING: EXCITING & FULL OF FINESSE

    But the finesse of Riesling has always fascinated winegrowers. That is why there have been many attempts, even in warmer regions where the vine does not really feel comfortable, to ripen too early and produce fruity but rather irrelevant table wines. Really good Rieslings are rare in Italy, but in some regions exciting wines succeed, such as in Piedmont, Lombardy, Trentino and Veneto. A few even in Tuscany. In total, however, there are only just over 600 hectares throughout Italy.

    The Riesling Italico is by the way not related to the Rhein-Riesling, but a variation of the Austrian Welschriesling.

    It is said that no other grape variety can bring the terroir so well into the glass. However, this is only possible if Riesling can reach a long vegetation period. So in cool regions, on barren steep slopes, slate or primary rock soils. Often all other grape varieties are fermenting long before the Riesling harvest even begins. Reading dates in November are nothing special.

    No other white variety produces so many different wine styles and always retains its characteristics. The secret is the balanced interplay of fruit, minerality and the unique spicy acidity, paired - depending on the origin - with an elegant filigree structure and powerful spice.

    CONVINCING MATURING POTENTIAL

    While in Italy and Austria Riesling is almost always dry as a bone, there is quite a range in Germany. From dry Grosse Gewächsen to the typical "Möselchen", low-alcohol, residual sweet Kabinett Rieslings, to noble sweet Prädikatswein, such as Beerenauslesen or Trockenbeerenauslesen. Even the sweetest Riesling varieties have this piquant acid structure that makes them so popular. Because Riesling also ripens excellently. Even for decades.

    Riesling probably originated from a natural crossing of wild vines with a Traminer clone, which in turn crossed with the Heunisch. The origin is assumed to be on the Rhine, where it was already mentioned in documents in the 15th century, hence the name. A descent from Alsace, where a Rüsseling was mentioned, is just as incredible as a derivation from a village in the Wachau called Ritzling. SUPERIORE.DE
