Lagrein DOC Alto Adige
Lagrein is a true son of Alto Adige!
Our Lagrein grows on sandy, loamy soils at Lake Caldaro at heights of somewhat more than 200 metres above sea level.
It is crimson-red with violet reflexes. A wine full of character, with aromas of blackcurrant, plum, elder and liquorice, it is powerful on the palate, with distinct tannins and a certain fruitiness in the long finish.
Our Lagrein pairs best with braised, grilled or quick-roasted meat dishes as well as dark poultry.
