Lagrein

Vintage

2016

Classification

Alto Adige DOC

Production area

Sandy, warm and deep soils such as the ones we find in the area called Bassa Atesina are ideal for the grape varietal Lagrein.  The Lagrein is native to Alto Adige and grows throughout the Valle dell'Adige. 

Winemaking

The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small containers to  prevent excess pressure on the grapes. Destemming and slow must fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Malolatic fermentation and aging in big wooden barrels and concrete vats for 8 months.

Tasting notes & food matching

The Lagrein has a fine and pleasant bouquet, reminiscent of violets. Its flavour is full, velvety and slightly bitter and it also keeps well.  This is a wine that goes well with grilled and roast meats, game and spicy cheeses.
