Helios Riesling Italian
The DOC Recas region of Romania has a Mediterranean climate, cooler than the rest of Romania, and dryer with a longer harvest season, allowing many grape varieties to ripen easily. This extremely versatile Riesling Italian (Welschriesling) has an aromatic exotic fruit nose and palate that delivers a fine honey note along with the characteristic backbone of acidity. Extended lees ageing gives the wine great depth and body.
|When Nello Dal Tio first saw the hills of Petrovaselo, back in 2002, it was like going back to his childhood years, to his origins back in Treviso, Italy. He fell in love with the area, its beauty and tranquility and decided to invest and plant the vineyards at Petrovaselo in 2005. Today the south facing vines total 42 ha and are tended by hand meticulously. Once harvested the grapes are transported to a gravity fed underground winery where they undergo careful vinification with minimal intervention and no filtration.|
