Kerner
kerner
Thanks to its resistance to frost, the German hybrid of Trollinger and Riesling, named after the Swabian poet Justinus Kerner, is planted primarily at the higher elevations of the Isarco Valley and the Val Venosta in the Italian Alps. This grape produces sleek, spicy Italian white wines with a slight hint of nutmeg. Thanks to its rich abundance of aroma and its fine, fruity bouquet, Kerner has the potential to become a new point of pride for Alto Adige’s winegrowers.
