Manzoni Bianco

The white grape variety is a new variety between Riesling x Pinot Blanc. Synonyms are I.M. 6.0.13, Incrocio Manzoni 6.0.13, Manzoni 6.0.13 and Manzoni Bijeli. The cross was made by the Italian grower Luigi Manzoni (1888-1968) in the early 1930s at the Conegliano Viticultural Institute in Veneto (Italy). It was by far his most successful creation. The early to medium-ripening vine is resistant to powdery mildew and esca. It produces aromatic white wines with flavours of jasmine, lemon and honey.

The variety is mainly cultivated in the Veneto region, where it is authorised in the DOC/DOCG wines Bianco di Custoza, Colli di Conegliano, Colli Euganei and Vicenza. It is also grown in Apulia, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Calabria, Molise and Trentino-Alto Adige. In 2000, the area under cultivation in Italy still totalled 8,290 hectares. In 2016, however, only 339 hectares of vineyards were designated; the reason for this extreme reduction is not known (Kym Anderson). Small areas are also said to exist in the Penedès region of Spain.
