While many crossings of varietals have been attempted in the history of winemaking, the list of unsuccessful attempts far outweigh the success stories. A cross between Riesling and the indigenous Schiava (aka Vernatsch), Kerner is one variety that has consistently produced high quality wine. Abbazia di Novacella produces perhaps the finest example of Kerner to date. With the intensity of Muscat, this is highly perfumed wine with aromas of grapefruit pith, lychee, dried mangos and cherry blossoms. The acidity is soft and well-paced, descending towards a fleshy mineral rich texture before gliding down a delicate floral, slightly nutty finish.
