A particular grape of the Valle Isarco region. Greenish to bright yellow in color. Peaches, apricots, and tones of tangerines on the nose. Very lively, juicy, and sleek on the palate, with a mineral-rich finish.
Description

The Kerner grape is an aromatic white grape variety. It was bred in 1929 by August Herold by crossing Trollinger (a red variety also known as Schiava or Vernatsch) and Riesling.  Kerner is named in honour of a poet and physician from Swabia, Justinus Kerner, whose works included songs and poetry on drinking and wine.

Abbazia was founded in 1142 by the Augustinian Order of Canons Regular.  The estate has long been known for producing world class white wines with a tremendous price/quality ratio. The white grape vineyards are in the town of Novacella, surrounding the abbey, while the red grapes grow further south.
