89 points Wine Spectator: "The 2018 Alto Adige Valle Isarco Kerner (with an ample 140,000 bottles produced) is a fresh and direct expression of the grape with mild aromas of white fruit, peach, quince and spring rose. The wine offers good acidity—it is fresh without feeling sharp or too crisp—and it has a touch more substance and volume on the finish that would make the wine a good pairing partner to Thai food or sushi. The wine only sees contact with stainless steel. Drink: 2019-2022. (Jul 2019)"

89 points James Suckling: "The lifted eucalyptus and tea tree oil notes pick up the brighter peaches and apricots. The medium-bodied palate is quite textured, with a slightly sweet impression, but is well balanced out by a fine line of acidity. A little one-dimensional. Drink now. (11/7/19)"

Producer notes: "The Kerner variety is a Schiava and Riesling hybrid created in Weinsberg (Germany) around 1930. It prefers the light, gravelly and sandy soils of the higher altitude, sunny hillsides of the mid Valle Isarco. Despite their late ripening period, these grapes provide a highly acclaimed full-bodied and tasty wine. Food Pairing: Light appetizers, cold meats, egg or mushroom dishes, poached freshwater fish and shellfish, excellent as an aperitif."
