Alto Adige Lagrein DOC
The Lagrein is one of the oldest varieties from South Tyrol. In the past, this wine was produced mainly as a Rosé. Since the 1980’s onward, the “dark” version prevailed.
Our Lagrein derives a benefit from the deep sedimentary soils of the Talfer River in Bolzano, which are optimal for this variety and responsible for the pleasant character of Lagrein wines from Bolzano.
After the fermentation in concrete eggs at 30°C, the wine matures in big wooden barrels.

It is a pleasant, dry red wine, with notes of violets, chocolate and liquorice, on the palate it is velvety and with mild acidity.
It is rich in tannins, but in the Bolzano basin, these tannins evolve in a very mild and sweet way.
