Sottovenda – IGT Veneto Manzoni Bianco

Sottovenda – IGT Veneto Manzoni Bianco

Among the white wines of the Zanovello selections, the IGT Veneto Manzoni Bianco Sottovenda is one of the most striking in terms of flavour, complexity on the palate and persistence. A white wine to be tasted even over the years to grasp the interesting evolution of the typical hydrocarbon hints.
The IGT Veneto Manzoni Bianco Sottovenda lives on well-drained soils mixed with marl and rhyolitic breccia. The Manzoni Bianco grape gives us an expressive, full-bodied wine characterised by a lively colour that on the nose expresses intense hints of citrus and crisp white flesh fruit with mineral notes. The sip is full and persistent with an excellent acid – sapid balance.

History of Manzoni Bianco
Manzoni Bianco was born in the 1930s in the Oenological School of Conegliano, a point of reference for modern oenology thanks to prominent figures such as the teacher and later headmaster Luigi Manzoni. He studied vine diseases and genetics for years with the aim of obtaining varieties that were better in terms of quality and more resistant to disease than those cultivated until then. From 1924 to 1935 he experimented with hundreds of hybridisations between grape varieties, first using table grapes, then wine grapes. Some crosses were very successful, among them the Incrocio Manzoni 6.0.13 (Riesling Renano X Pinot Bianco), which we have been cultivating on the slopes of Monte Venda since the 1980s thanks to Franco Zanovello’s desire to experiment. From these deep soils rich in organic substance, characterised by a good temperature range and exposure, we produce a wine of great pleasantness and longevity.
