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.
