Riesling Renano takes its name from the grapevine of the same name and is partly made with the grapeskins. It has a brilliant straw-yellow colour with a light greenish reflection, and a very strong aroma, which is long-lasting, lightly fragrant, very typical of the vine, and pleasantly fruity. It tastes dry, fresh and very well-balanced.

The producer

The Jermann family moved from Austria to Villanova di Farra in Friuli in 1881. They jointly-owned the property to begin with, but later became the sole proprietors. Wine-making emerged as their main activity towards the beginning of the nineteenth century. They are people who work the land, all cut from the same cloth, the sort of people who are never defeated by tiredness and refuse to budge an inch from traditional practices. Silvio's grandfather is the sort of man that having to go to war chose the Austrian army, and having inherited a vineyard, albeit in a gloomy valley, shaken by a cold, dry north-easterly wind, made wine. In 1968 Silvio went to Conegliano to study wine. He had an independent spirit and was determined to shake things up. He returned anxious to change everything. These are no longer heavy, greasy wines, but are now aromatic and well-balanced, made for contemporary tastes, according to contemporary ideas, using contemporary equipment, but with a respect for tradition. Silvio learnt about making white wine at college, he learnt about maceration, and had a definite ideas about the sort of wine he wanted to make. Not just a modern wine, but a wine that would satisfy tastes that had yet to be formed. He argued with his father, emigrated to Canada, returned and succeeded. His wines, and his family, Austro-Hungarian father included, are today among the most appreciated and valued products that Friuli-Venezia Giulia has produced.

Best with

This wine is very good with vegetables, shellfish, and roast fish dishes with sauces. It goes particularly well with sea-bass in a white almond sauce.

How to serve it

The wine should be served at 8 - 10 degrees centigrade in clear, transparent crystal goblets.

How to keep

This is not a wine that will improve with age and should therefore be drunk within a maximum of 2-3 years of purchase. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.
