Canterius Riesling


This Riesling white wine tends to exhibit apple and tree fruit notes with noticeable levels of acidity that are balanced with residual sugar. Its naturally high acidity and pronounced fruit flavors give this wine exceptional aging potential.

Food Pairing   In general, pair lighter, crisper Rieslings with delicate (or raw) fish; more substantial Rieslings are good with Asian food, chicken, salmon and tuna.
Best served at a temperature of   10˚C > 12˚C
13% ABV

For four generations the Averoldi family has cultivated the vineyards nestled in the scenic village of Cantrina, on the western edge of Lago di Garda, Brescia. They farm 15 hectares planted on loam and clay soils. They manually harvest their grapes, and their vinification techniques are traditional.
