Description

The Abbazia di Novacella was established in 1142, as part of the Augustinian convent that still today remains one of most important religious and cultural centres in central Europe. The Augustinian Canons Regular monastery of Neustift is located in Valle D?Isarco, the northern-most winegrowing region on the southern side of the Alps. The mineral-rich soils, the elevation (1,970 ft – 2,950 ft) and the cool climate are all factors which explain the intense aromas and flavours as well as fruity, mouth-watering acidity found in their wines produced from the typical white Eisack Valley grape varieties. The working Abbey that doubles (triples?) as a winery/boarding school displays Gothic architecture contrasting nicely with the serried ranks of gleaming stainless steel. Celestino Lucin, who is making a very good name for himself in the North East as one of the best oenologists available, oversees wine making. The long drawn-out ripening period extending well into the autumn is crucial.
