Mitterberg Bronner IGT
The variety Bronner has been bred 1975 from the Institute of viticulture in Freiburg (Breisgau) Germany. Through multiple crossings from wild wines “vitis labrusca” and European vines “vitis vinifera” a very high fungi-resistance has been achieved. At the same time the variety maintained the elegant characteristics of European vines. Today the Bronner, often compared with an elegant Pinot Bianco, is said to be the most interesting variety of its fungi-resistant kind. The bouquet is multi-facetted and delicate, reminds of fresh stone-fruits, matured citrus fruits end meadow flowers. The well integrated crispy acidity gives the wine together with its minerality, an extraordinary dynamic and long aftertaste.
