2018 Kerner

Manni Nössing

You may already know and appreciate Kerner, the grape created in Germany when Riesling and Schiava were crossed. You may also know that Manni Nössing is one of the world’s most outspoken proponents and best growers of this reliable grape. If you do not know either of these things you are in for a wonderful discovery! In Italy you will find Kerner only in the northern reaches of Alto Adige, near the Austrian border, where Manni carves his creations out of granite. Explosive aromatics, a sleek, racy, Riesling-like backbone, and generous, rounded body all combine to offer refreshment and intrigue. This is a perfect white wine to reach for when you tire of the usual suspects.

About Alto Adige

map of Alto Adige

In the heart of the Dolomites, Alto Adige is Italy’s northernmost wine region. Having changed hands multiples times in its history between Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire (it shares a border with Austria), it boasts strong Germanic influence on its culture, language, cuisine, as well as its wines.

The mountainous geography is the principal determinant of local winemaking styles, with the high-altitude vineyards and cool Alpine climate favoring primarily crisp, racy, aromatic whites from varieties like Kerner, Sauvignon, Müller Thurgau, and Grüner Veltliner. A Mediterranean influence on climate is channeled north up the valley until Bolzano, permitting the cultivation of certain reds as well, among which Schiava, Lagrein, Pinot Nero, and Merlot fare best.

Small growers who once sold fruit to the area’s multiple co-ops are now increasingly bottling their own wines. The arrival of many quality-oriented artisans on the scene caught our eye years ago, and we now count three estates from Südtirol, as it is also known, in our portfolio. These high-acid mountain wines make for a beautifully invigorating aperitivo with thinly sliced speck, a local specialty.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
