Ruby red in color with a deep garnet sheen, this fruity wine has a fine cherry bouquet. Balanced and round in flavor, it shows plenty of structure and is well-proportioned, with an elegant, lingering finish.
This Lagrein is characterised by a lively ruby red colour and a variety of aromas reminiscent of ripe red fruits. A full, pleasantly warm and intense wine with a velvety softness. A red wine of distinction, unique in its way, and only to be found in South Tyrol. It goes exceedingly well with meat, roasts and spicy cheeses, but it is also a wine to savour and for meditation, above all when it is drunk following several years of ageing and maturation in the bottle.
