"C’era una volta" Riesling Oltrepò Pavese DOC 2021 - Losito e Guarini

The Riesling Italico vine (and with it the Renano) is one of the most widespread varieties in the Oltrepò pavese, with about 1,500 hectares of vineyards. It is certainly one of the most representative of this enchanting land that is only a few kilometres from the outskirts of Milan and that for years was the wine cellar of the city's upper middle class. C'era Una Volta, a pure Riesling proposed here by Losito & Guarini, is the result of a careful processing of grapes harvested at full maturity and selected by hand. We start with crushing and destemming and cryo-maceration to facilitate the extraction of the aromas. Then soft pressing and fermentation at controlled temperature with selected yeasts. Refined in steel and bottled when the wine is stable and intact. Straw yellow colour with golden hues, the aroma is pleasantly aromatic, with hints of fresh fruit, pear, peach, apricot and elegant floral fragrances. In the mouth it is dry, characterized by a fresh and sapid taste, with a good acidulous note. Perfect with delicate dishes, such as king prawns or grilled tuna steaks.

The story of Losito Guarini is a beautiful Italian story. It began back in 1910 when a very young Domenico Losito left Trani in search of fortune. He arrived in Seveso, north of Milan, where a few years later he opened a tavern. It sells, of course, wine by the glass, in this case served in the typical "scudela", accompanied by the specialties cooked by his wife. From one goal to the next, Domenico's business grows and prospers, and from the initial tavern it becomes a small company that combines the restaurant with the activity of selling wine at home. And so we reach 1968, when Luisa, Domenico's granddaughter and Michele's daughter, marries Mr. Guarini, also of Apulian origin, who sold wine wholesale in Como. At that point Losito Guarini is ready to make the great leap in quality, thanks to the construction of new and more modern bottling plants. In the nineties, finally, the new generations were involved in the family business, represented by Davide and Renato, and a new branch was opened in Oltrepò. Today Losito Guarini produces about 25 million bottles a year, obtaining numerous awards from national and international wine and food critics.
