Why we love it
Another unusual grape from Gino and another great wine. Forget all Rieslings you ever tasted, reset your taste bud and prepare yourself for something of unique. Made with Riesling grapes grown in the Colli Piacentini area, the wine is left on its own lees for about 4 months to add complexity and structure and the result is a rich and intense nose with hints of fruit, on the palate the wine is fresh, refreshing, lively and a never ending fruity finish.
This Riesling was "included amongst the best 10 italian Riesling of the year and first non "Trentino or Alto Adige" in a tasting in 2016.

The artisan who made it
On the hills of Piacenza, on the Colli Piacentini, on the borders between Lombardia and Emilia Romagna, Luigi, Gino, to his friends, Molinelli makes his own wines. Owner and winemaker, his appearance is reminiscent of a crazy scientist, however, he is a fantastic person to talk to about wine and life in general. Gino is a fairly unconventional wine maker, from the grapes he grows, unusual for the area, to his wine making processes, his wine certainly won’t leave you indifferent. Gino is also greatly privileged to share his name with a variety of grape, the Molinelli grape, this grape was discovered in his vineyards in the 1960’s and, as such, he is the only producer of this grape variety and he uses it to make a fantastic passito.
