The wine

Franz Pratzner's riesling is considered by many to be the best in Alto Adige. His winery, Falkestein, is responsible for much of the rediscovery of the Vinschgau Valley as a wine-growing region. This is the northernmost offshoot of South Tyrol, where Riesling is grown on extreme slopes and yields results most similar to its northern European relatives, at altitudes of up to 900 metres above sea level. Aged for almost a year in acacia wood on the lees, Falkenstein's riesling is vigorous, spicy and mineral, with hints of flint, mango and bergamot on the nose. The taste is warm and enveloping, but with straight acidity and remarkable sapidity, with a harmonious progression and very long persistence.
