BRìACH

According to the Habsburg land registry maps, Brìach is the name of the portion of hill where the vineyard is situated.
From the single-variety Rhine Riesling, this wine represents the quintessence of Ruttàrs. Its mineral quality and crispness are reflected in the strong varietal notes, recalling the aromatic quality of the best expressions of German and Alsatian Rieslings, with a sunnier and more embracing drink guaranteed by our climate.
Only produced in the best years and aged for many years in steel, its complexity and longevity are quite surprising.
