Earthy skin contact riesling from a young couple in Italy's Veneto.

Veneto, Italy

The Brunetti family has grown and sold grapes on their biodiverse farm at the base of Monte Grappa for years, but recently young Nicola Brunetti and his partner Giulia Zanesco have been busy planting some unusual and unusual-for-Veneto varieties and making some pretty darned interesting low intervention wines from them. This one is pure riesling, with a month and a half of skin contact in old oak botti, with no added sulfur. The élevage gives turns this in a bassy direction where a lot of riesling has more treble; expect some subtle ripe fruit, with smoky minerals and spice, and a bit of tannin from the extended skin contact.
