At Abbazia di Novacella, an Augustinian abbey founded in 1142, they've been making wine for at least nine centuries. In the tasting room you can sample varietals produced in the Isarco Valley; Novacella is most famous for the delicate stone-fruit character of its dry white Sylvaner. You can also wander the delightful grounds; note the progression of Romanesque, Gothic, and baroque building styles. Guided tours of the abbey (in Italian and German) depart daily at 10, 11, 2, 3, and 4, as well as at noon and 1 in summer.More about the Winery
Reviews of Abbazia Di Novacella Gewurztraminer 2010
I was surprised it was a white with such an intense colour. Aromas of lemon. Extraordinary flavour with caramel hints.
One of the best I've ever tasted.
