3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

The Oltrepò Pavese, which means "beyond the Po River,” accounts for approximately 40,000 acres of vineyard planted in the southwestern part of Lombardy, Italy, on the right bank of the Po river, in the province of Pavia. Here the landscape of steeply rolling hills comprises limestone and clay-based soil, well-suited to the cultivation of vines. Only recently have the wines of Lombardy begun to acquire a well-deserved recognition that extends beyond regional borders. Traditionally these wines were sold in local country restaurants and taverns, along the banks of the Ticino and Po rivers.

Tasting notes
Pale straw with green reflections ------------------------------------------ Elegant and clean, with floral and citrus notes, characteristic of Riesling ------------------------------------------ Refreshing, lively and well balanced, with a hint of sweetness. Rich, luscious flavors of ripe peach, apricot and citrus.

Wine maker notes
Cold fermentation, including brief skin contact, is conducted under rigorously controlled conditions in order to facilitate maximum extraction of aromas. Refinement takes place in stainless steel tanks, with early bottling designed to maintain the wine’s naturally fresh bouquet.

Technical notes
11.5% abv

Food pairing
Enjoy with flavorful appetizers, meat and vegetable patés. Delicious with fish and white meats such as chicken and pork, and an excellent companion for Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Indian-inspired cuisine.
