(a.k.a Riesling Italico in Italy). Also known as the Welschriesling in Austria, Laski Rizling in Slovenia, (i.e former Yugoslavia), and Olasz Rizling in Hungary. Origins of this grape appear to be obscure, although Romania has been suggested. In the best vintage years of Austria it will allow production of white “Auslese” Prädikat wines to TBA levels, with greater acidity than the german Riesling, but without the same potential for long life.
