The Muller Thurgau grape variety, which was selected by Swiss researcher Dr. Hermann Müller in 1882, is a white vine resulting from a cross between Riesling and Madeleine Royale.
Good adaptability to the cold climate of mountainous regions and early ripening are some of the peculiarities of this quality vine variety.
These characteristics allowed it to spread in the Trentino area, where it has found ideal conditions on the hills, between 500-700 meters above sea level.
In particular, the small and steep vineyards of Val di Cembra - on the hills around Trento - and in the picturesque Valley of the Lakes.
To facilitate the par al passage of the aromatic substances from the skins to the must, the cold maceration of the grapes is carried out before the pressing. Similarly to other white wines, during the following vinification phase, the alcoholic fermentation is controlled.
Ideal with elegant appetizers, such as souﬄè with Parmesan cheese or Quiche Lorraine. It goes exceptionally well with pasta-based dishes, especially if made with shellfish-based sauces. It also combines well with fish dishes, such as Bercy sole or bass in a crust with lobster mousse.
Straw yellow with greenish reflections.
Very floral, with aromatic peach, nutmeg and sage notes.
Dry, fresh and lingering, with fresh acidity.
