Müller Thurgau Trentino D.O.C.
One must go up to over 800 meters altitude, in the valley of Ronchi, in order to reach one of the highest vineyards in Italy: it faces south-west, and is situated on a steep hill, surrounded by woods. This grape variety comes from a cross between Riesling and Sylvaner. The result is a wine of superior quality, which is refined, and it is this finesse that makes it so seductive.
