Overview of the Wine

Cembra Cantina di Montagna is the highest winery in Trentino (700 m asl). The territory is characterized by the characteristic vine-covered terraces that draw its valley.

Created in Weinsberg (Germany) around 1930, the Kerner is the result of a cross between Schiava and Riesling. It prefers the light, gravelly and sandy soils of the highest slopes exposed to the sun, such as those of the Cembra Valley.

About Kerner

It was first bred in Wurttemberg in 1929 by crossing Riesling and Trollinger (Schiava Grossa), and was named for Justinus Kerner, a 19th-Century German poet and writer of drinking songs... The varietal thrives in Northern Italy on its own and shows attractive apple, pear and citrus characteristics, sometimes with a hint of stonefruit. 

Origin

Trentino, Italy

Tasting Notes

It is a straw yellow wine with greenish reflections, with a fresh, intense and aromatic scent. In the mouth it is balanced, fresh, fruity, with delicate notes of peach and apricot.
