Thanks to its resistance to frost, the hybrid of Trollinger and Riesling, named after the German poet Justinus Kerner, is planted primarily at higher elevations of the Isarco Valley and the Val Venosta. This grape produces sleek, spicy wines with a slight hint of nutmeg. With its abundant aromas of tangerine, melon and passion fruit, Kerner has the potential to become a new point of pride for Alto Adige wine.
