WHITE WINE KERNER ABBAZIA DI NOVACELLA 2020 DESCRIPTION

The Kerner of Abbazia di Novacella happily mirrors the valuable features of its older brother, the Kerner Praepositus. Abbazia di Novacella, was built almost a millennium ago and now keeps winemaking traditions of Italian South Tyrol, creating wines that fully reflect the landscape charms of the Isarco Valley. Kerner is an aromatic grape, and the Abbazia di Novacella has been able to skillfully create pleasant white wines. That is originated on how the Kerner grapes grown on sand and gravel soils with an excellent drainage, warmed by the perfect southern exposure, giving the best of their natural flavors to the wine. The Kerner Abbazia di Novacella is a wine that suddenly captivates with the elegant emerald cloak able to make the glass shine. On the palate it knows pleasantly combine the fresh and sharp flavor of an incisive softness, to the harmony of smooth fruity notes. A great interpretation of the terroir with a clear and dynamic style.
