Abbazia di Novacella Kerner 2017, Trentino-Alto, Italy
PRESS: Wine Enthisiast - 94 points. 'Intense aromas of white rose, yellow stone fruit and citrus almost leap out of the glass on this fragrant white. Elegantly structured, the vibrant palate delivers apricot, orange zest and a hint of ginger while a smoky note lingers on the finish.'
