2018 Kerner

Manni Nössing

Manni Nössing takes Kerner, an unfashionable work-horse grape reserved for blending, and does what Pierre de Benoist does for Aligoté: flips its reputation for mediocrity on its head. In Manni’s talented hands, Kerner becomes the love child of a German Riesling and a chalky Chablis. While a traditional pairing might be Trentino’s strangolapreti—spinach gnocchi in a warm, melted butter and onion sauce—such “priest stranglers” are hard to come by, especially during a pandemic! So I subbed in some spinach pierogies with a side of caramelized onions. Heaven.

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.
