2012 Abbazia di Novacella Valle Isarco Kerner

2012 Abbazia di Novacella Valle Isarco KernerThis wine comes recommended by Jon BonnĂ© in the San Francisco Chronicle. He wrote: “This Augustinian abbey remains a strong force in the Isarco valley. Its Kerner, grown at around 2,000 feet on gravel, is always strong, and this exuberant vintage is the best in several years.”

BonnĂ© added: “Full of pink grapefruit and agave flavours, with a wonderful rooty aspect underneath: fennel bulb and lilies. Irresistible, although Abbazia’s entire 2012 lineup rallied, including the Valle Isarco Muller Thurgau, a juicy, poppy-seed-accented example of that underrated grape.”
