Named after the grape variety form which it comes and which was bred by the Swiss researcher Doctor Hermann Müller in 1882. This is a white-grape variety which comes from the crossing of Riesling renano with Chasselass dorato. It is adaptable to the cold climate of mountain areas and ripens early. For these reasons cultivation is widespread in Trentino, where it has found an ideal habitat on the slopes at an altitude of 500-700 metres a.s.l. where the microclimate conveys special organoleptic qualities to a “high-flying” wine.
Colour: pale yellow with greenish highlights.
Bouquet: intense, flowery with aromatic peach, musk-rose and sage notes.
Palate: dry, fresh, persistent with a fresh acidity.
It is perfect paired with elegant starters like Parmigiano soufflé, Quiche Lorraine. Its meeting with first courses of pasta is considered exceptional, especially if they are prepared with sauces with shellfish. It is excellent also with second courses with fish, like sole Bercy-style or crusted sea bass with lobster mousse.
