Langhe DOC Riesling 2020 - Chionetti

The choice of the Chionetti family to offer a Riesling Renano, Langhe DOC may come as a surprise. And yet it is enough to taste it to understand that the choice is not random. In this case, the grapes come from the commune of Dogliani, in the Martina hamlet. We are about 500 metres above sea level, on the southern slope of a hill characterised by whitish marl alternating with compact sandstone, the so-called "Langa stone". The soil is poor, shallow and even at risk of summer drought. But here, in this corner of Piedmont, the terroir is able to give personality and minerality to the wine. Just what a good Riesling needs to not go unnoticed. After vinification, the wine then rests for about 8 months "sur lie" in temperature-controlled steel tanks, acquiring greater complexity and depth. Straw yellow with green reflections, the nose presents delicate notes of white flowers and citrus fruits, alternating with more vegetal hints. A white that evolves well with time, in the mouth it reveals good acidity and freshness, as well as a pleasantly savoury finish. Rieslings, and this one is certainly no exception, are generally very versatile wines in terms of food pairings. Excellent with fish and shellfish, this interesting Chionetti white also goes well with white meats and goat's cheese.

The Chionetti family's link with the vine dates back to the 19th century. Although the real turning point came only in 1912, when Giuseppe Chionetti bought the farmstead in San Luigi, a particularly suitable area in the commune of Dogliani. From this moment on, the family linked its name above all to that of the Dolcetto grape, which it sold to the biggest merchants in the area. The marketing of bottles under their own name, however, was developed with the arrival in the company of Quinto, grandson of the founder Giuseppe, while it is Andrea, Quinto's son, who contributes to the growth of the family vineyards and the beginning of exports to the USA. Since 2013, Nicola, Quinto's grandson, has been carrying on the family tradition. Today the winery can contract, as well as on the three historical cru of Dogliani, also on 3 vineyards in the Barolo area purchased in 2015. All the vineyards have organic certification.
