Supernovae explosions are among the most energetic transients that occur in the Universe. A large number of MeV neutrinos of all flavours are emitted during the explosion. XENONnT is a multi-ton detector for direct search of dark matter. It consists of a liquid/gas xenon TPC, surrounded by 700 tons of Gd-doped water, instrumented with PMTs for muon and neutron tagging. We present the results of a Monte Carlo simulation to predict the number and characteristics of the detected neutrino events both as neutral current in the xenon TPC, and as inverse beta decay in the neutron and muon veto.
