The 2018 Alto Adige Valle Isarco Kerner Praepositus is an edgy and offbeat expression with a fun blend of citrusy primary fruit and some distant petrol or jet fuel at the back. Fermentation and aging all take place in stainless steel, and the fruit is drawn from a site located very high up in the mountains at 750 meters above sea level. The wine's mineral signature is very strong, and you are left with a pretty dusting of chalk and flint, with grapefruit, mango and nectarine. Production is 30,000 bottles.

The 2018 Kerner Praepositus is intensely perfumed and even a bit spicy in the glass, showing zested lemon with yellow flowers, hints of ginger, white smoke and sour melon. Soft textures soothe the senses, giving way to ripe orchard fruits with a citrus and mineral twang that slices through its otherwise rich persona to result in a wonderfully pure and clean expression. Inner florals resonate for well over a minute, along with a lasting note of bitter granny smith apple and lime. The Praepositus line is a selection of what Abbazia di Novacella considers their best fruit from each harvest, vinified all in stainless steel.

Region: Trentino/Alto Adige

The Italian wine region of Trentino-Alto Adige is often considered to be Italy's finest and most unique wine region, with centuries of history, and a range of different influences coming from the region's proximity to Germanic countries, as well as places like Lombardy and Venezia. However, it is usually Trentino-Alto Adige's alpine nature which causes wine fans to become the most excited, as the beautiful terroir in the foothills of the Italian Alps produce wines which are packed full of fascinating and unique attributes, due to the crystal mountain waters and plentiful minerals present in the soils of the vineyards. The three native grape varietals of the area are still used in Trentino-Alto Adige's wines, however, it is more common to find excellent imported grapes listed on the region's bottles, as great success has been had with Pinot Gris, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay grapes over the years.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
