Fun Facts: The Incrocio Manzoni 13.0.25 is a cross between the Raboso and Muscat Hamburg varietals. It was created in the 30s by Professor Manzoni of the Istituto Enologico di Conegliano The Professor said: “One can smile the choice of this very strange combination. I thought that, to correct the Raboso’s roughness, the Muscat Hamburg would be perfect to pass on, intact, its character of finesse and create strong and productive descendents.”
A wonderfully pink-coloured wine is obtained from these grapes, expertly vinified with a light pressing and eliminating the skins immediately.
