WINERY: Abbazia di Novacella
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 Praepositus Veltliner 2011
Too colorful for a Abbazia di Novacella. Notes of white fruits such as apples. Woody flavour, do not know if the grapes or barrels.
It is so good that it is best taken alone.
