Dark ruby with garnet tones. An intense and complex bouquet of spicy aroma, earth and the fresh perfume of wild berries and violets. Medium to full in body with medium tannins, juicy round fruit and a light spicy finish.
Recommended pairings: Red meats, roast, game, and hard cheeses
Serving temperature: 16 - 18° C (61 - 64° F)
Cellaring: 8 - 10 years

This varietal, unique to Alto Adige, finds excellent growing conditions on the loamy soils of the community of Ora. Tender care of the vineyard offers the best conditions for the production of varietal and extraordinary quality.

Yield per hectare: 55 hl.

Vinification: The stems are immediately removed and the grapes are fermented at a constant temperature of 28° C (82° F) for about 10 days. The must is kept in regular contact with the skins through circulation pumping and gentle pressure from below. We thus achieve ideal colour and flavour results from skin contact which emphasizes the fruitiness of the wine. After two gentle rackings, 60% of this Lagrein is aged over 12 months in large oak barrels, and the remainder is aged in small casks of French oak (barriques) which are 2 - 3 years old. After blending, 750 mL Bordeaux-style bottles are filled and the wine is aged an additional 6 months in the bottle before being released.

Critical Praise

2009 vintage rated 4 out of 5 'grappoli', in the 2012 edition of Bibenda Wine "The guide to the finest Italian wines". 2010 ratings have not yet been published.
