Professional Wine Reviews for Abbazia Di Novacella Kerner Praepositus 2018

Rated 94 by Wine Enthusiast
Intense aromas of ripe apricot, tangerine and botanical herb lead the way. Full bodied and savory, the palate also boasts tension and energy, delivering ripe yellow peach, orange zest, nutmeg and ginger alongside vibrant acidity.
Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
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.

Winery Abbazia Di Novacella

Region: Trentino/Alto Adige

There are few wine regions in Italy which generate quite as much intrigue and excitement amongst wine lovers as that of Trentino-Alto Adige. Situated in the northernmost borders of the country, Trentino-Alto Adige is a wine region quite unlike any other in Italy. With a range of influences from Germany, Lombardy and Venezia, the wines of Trentino-Alto Adige tend to be quite different from those found elsewhere in Italy, and are often considered to be the country's finest produce. The region is an alpine one, and the flavors of the Alps are often detected in Trentino-Alto Adige's finest white wines – all fresh, crystal waters and resiny aromas – whilst the red wines are generally deep and spicy, and perfect for a range of cuisines.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
