Manzoni Bianco


IM 6-0-13. With this cold marking the lives of famous botanist John Manzoni, for many years dean of the School of Enology in Conegliano, pointed to one of the most successful crosses of his long career ampelographer. It would be easier and fairer to call Manzoni, as it did for the Müller Thurgau, but you might run into confusion with other intersections, children of the same Manzoni, although not as famous. The Pinot Blanc and Riesling act as mother and father to this child unique. Fairly common in the Veneto region, especially in the province of Treviso, mistreated by the EEC regulation that does not include it among the recommendations in the Friuli region, this grape has got to be some spread in the Middle of Friuli, between the serious and cut Meduna. It has been requested for use among the recommended varieties of grapes as grapes worthy of our highest consideration.
