Langhe DOC Riesling Ranera

Cascine Drago

Rhine Riesling planted in the 1980s at Cascine Drago: fresh and citrusy in the first year, it later develops the classic complex aromas of grape variety, always with a fresh acidity, giving good ageing potential.

White temperament, red attitudes

As a result of the positive experience with Pinot Noir in 1985, the idea arose to try a white grape grape variety. Since we could draw on the palette of Tino’s experience in France, we chose Riesling. Again, the choice has been of Rhine shoots in order to obtain the true essence of this wine: the freshness and minerality of a great white, the evolution and ageing potential of a great red.

The name of the Ranera wine comes from the frogs’ singing that can be heard in the evening. There is a small river in the lower part of the hill, making it the favourite place for these little animals.
