Wine of the Week

2010 Abbazia di Novacella 'Stiftskellerei Neustift'

Region: Alto Adige, Italy

Price: About $18

Style: Crisp and bright

What it goes with: Steamed shellfish, vegetable soups, grilled fish.

Celestino Lucin, winemaker for Abbazia di Novacella, an abbey in Italy's Alto Adige region that dates to 1142, is renowned for his white wines. This Sylvaner from the 2010 vintage is no exception.

The grapes are grown on steep hillsides surrounding the abbey. Yields are low. And the result is this complex Sylvaner with a flowery bouquet and mineral undertow. It tastes of honey and pear, and its crisp acidity makes it an ideal food wine.
