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.
Grape / Blend
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.
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.

Lemon pith, loquat, lots of blossom and honeysuckle. Medium-to-full bodied with good, driven acidity and a tangy finish. Drink now.
