A white wine hailing from the Italian Alps that showcases the Kerner grape variety. With its bright acidity and minerality, this wine displays aromas of white peach, citrus, and spring flowers on the nose, and a palate that is both complex and elegant. Its crisp finish makes it a perfect pairing for seafood, poultry, or light vegetable dishes.

Details

The estate has long been known for producing world class white wines with a tremendous price/quality ratio. The production comes from a total of 80 hectares. The Abbey owns 6 hectares near the winery in Novacella, as well as 15 hectares at their Marklhof estate near Bolzano. For the rest of the production, they work with over 50 small growers in the region. The soil for the wines is mainly granitic schist, created by ancient glaciers; and the vineyards are quite steep. Though it is one of the oldest wineries in the world with over 850 years of winemaking experience, the cellar is entirely modern. - Skurnik Website
