Wine Comments
Pale, lemon yellow in colour, this wine is fresh and youthful, with zesty, lemon-lime perfumes and a classic mineral note. On the palate it is dry and clean, with good weight of crisp, ripe apple fruit and a long, citrus finish.

The Domaine
The name Petràcine comes from Latin, ‘petra’ meaning stone and ‘racine’ meaning root, indicating that it could grow in rocky soil. The first vineyard dedicated to Riesling was Fossati, located at the very highest part of the Comune of Barolo at 440-480 metres above sea level. It has an east-south-east exposure, facing the morning sun and sits on sandy, gravel soil. In 2009, Aldo started to take fruit from a second vineyard in Sinio. Facing north-east on a lower hillside, it‘s distinctive for its calcareous soils and brings an added layer of complexity to the wine.

Food Pairing
Chicken, caviar, lobster and oysters.
