Incrocio Manzoni or Manzoni Grapes: A Vinous Legacy by Professor Luigi Manzoni

Incrocio Manzoni, or Manzoni grapes, represent a family of grape varieties meticulously crafted by Professor Luigi Manzoni (1888-1968) at Italy’s oldest school of oenology in Conegliano, Veneto. These grapes, named in honor of the esteemed professor, emerged from a careful selection, crossing, and grafting of vines from various vineyards during the 1920s and 1930s. This family encompasses both white and red grape varieties, predominantly flourishing in the Piave area of the Province of Treviso.

One notable member is Manzoni Bianco, also known as “Incrocio Manzoni 6.0.13.” This white variety, born from the union of Riesling and Pinot Blanc grapes in the 1930s, showcases the ingenuity of Professor Manzoni. While there was speculation about Chardonnay as a parent, DNA analysis confirmed Pinot Blanc’s role. Adaptable to diverse vineyard soils and climates, Manzoni Bianco exhibits robust resistance to viticultural hazards like apoplexy, powdery mildew, and sour rot.

With 9,555 hectares planted in Italy by 2000, mostly in Friuli, Trentino, and Veneto, Manzoni Bianco has since expanded southward to regions like Calabria, Molise, and Apulia. Its versatility is evident in its use for blending in Colli di Conegliano, Trentino Bianco DOCs, and as a varietal in the Vincenza DOC. Producers in the Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT have experimented with spumante and frizzante sparkling wines, while Spanish winemakers in Catalonia’s Penedès region have embraced this grape, crafting oak-aged varietal examples.

Considered by Master of Wine Jancis Robinson as the most successful crossing by Professor Manzoni, Manzoni Bianco is typically crafted into dry wines, with producers exploring full-bodied, off-dry styles reminiscent of German Riesling. Varietal expressions enchant with richness and intense aromatics, featuring notes of honey, jasmine, lime, orange peel, and verbena. Explore the legacy of Incrocio Manzoni in each exquisite sip, a testament to Professor Manzoni’s enduring contribution to the world of wine.
