Grapes: 100% Riesling
Tasting notes: It’s Reisling but not as you know it. This wine has a lot more going on than your average Reisling and it’s unbelievably easy to drink, with nice levels of acidity and some enjoyable apple flavours.
Pair with: Something with a touch of spice.
Did you know?: This is the smallest producer we work with. They’re almost a micro producer.
Total production: 550
The story: I signed up to a wine buying event in Florence in 2018. There were two compounding reasons for me to attend. The first was that it fell over my birthday weekend and was 3 days in Florence – hotels, flights and all the wine for £180… I mean who is going to turn that down?! The second, was that there were some really interesting producers at the event. One in particular, selling a Riesling from Tuscany. That is a rare find indeed… I mean, who the hell grows Riesling in Tuscany?! I had to try it.
I met Lorenzo, a very quiet and gently spoken man. We started to talk and hit it off straight away. His English is perfect so I could tell him my jokes and he laughed. All of his wines were just unbelievable, from the Chardonnay to the Super Tuscan blend but especially the Riesling. I love a good Riesling and this is a very subtle one.
