Lagrein Alto Adige DOC
100% Lagrein. A deep, intense ruby red that in some vintages, shows purple reflections. Its bouquet is intense and vast with aromas that go from ripe red berries to violet, all complemented by fresh grass and cocoa. Overall, it shows great personality with rich, velvety tannins, pleasing fullness and a long and captivating finale. The wine can be enjoyed young, although longer refinement in the bottle makes for a softer and rounder palate.
“Since its foundation in 1880, the winery has focused on the quality of the grapes and bringing out the best in them. Special attention has always been given to using the minimum and most selective chemical substances during cultivation and fertilization.”
