CURIOSITY: The Italic Riesling vine is one of the most widely spread varieties in the Oltrepò Pavese, thus creating in this zone the widest Italian cultivated area with 1500 hectares of vineyard. Its origin is still uncertain, it is said to be a descendant of the Animea Gemella, a vine used by the Romans. Some people think it could have originated from France or a country of Central Europe and from there it could have been diffused to Veneto under the Austro-Hungarian rule.
