Abbazia di Novacella

The Veltliner "Praepositus" by Abbazia di Novacella comes from vineyards located between 650 and 700 meters above sea level and gives us a bouquet with intense notes of grapefruit and melon and with a final slightly smoked.

Novacella Abbey's Gruner Veltliner "Praepositus" expresses, through one of the symbolic grape varieties of northern mountain viticulture, the finesse and elegance that characterizes the whites of the Eisack Valley. The "Praepositus" line represents the expressive pinnacle of South Tyrolean whites signed by the Abbey of Novacella, which are distinguished by particular precision and freshness, elegantly chiseled in every feature. This is a white with an intriguing character, marked by a delicate complexity and a distinctive smoky trait.

"Praepositus" Gruner Veltliner from Abbazia di Novacella is made from the pure Veltliner grape variety. It comes from only estate-owned vineyards, facing southwest and located at an altitude between 650 and 700 meters above sea level, defined by sandy and gravelly soils. At harvest time, the grapes are selected and picked, then transported to the winery where they are vinified. A soft pressing makes it possible to obtain the must, which is initiated to alcoholic fermentation through the action of indigenous yeasts. It takes place inside steel tanks, in which it matures for about 6 months. This is followed by 3 months of maturation in the bottle before marketing.

Abbazia di Novacella Gruner Veltliner "Praepositus" presents itself in the glass with an intense and brilliant straw yellow color. The nose reveals a fruity trait of grapefruit and melon, enhanced by a floral note of lavender and a spicy trail. It closes in a very expressive smoky finish, which finishes a bouquet, overall, of great elegance. In the mouth it shows a beautiful balance in its components, given by the fresh and savory veins, softness and alcohol content. The excellent persistence perpetuates the memory of this white with very fine traits.
