Lagrein Riserva DOC - 2013 - Weingut Clemens Waldthaler
Colour: strong garnet red. Aroma: invitingly open and multi-layered with violets, chocolate, ripe damsons, cloves. Taste: elegant with velvety structure, soft tannins, light bitter almond tones, youthful freshness, rustic elegance, unpretentious yet cosmopolitan: the perfect symbiosis of the traditional and the modern
Color: deep ruby to garnet red with a delicate shimmer of violet. Smell: The aroma reveals earthy, minerally notes masterfully underpinned with fruit components, with morello cherry and plum jam dominating. Taste: These peaty, spicy and yet velvety fruit notes also intrigue the palate, where this Lagrein Riserva presents itself with multilayered opulence and great complexity.
Medium garnet colour with ruby hints. Rich, quite pronounced, spicy aroma with a chocolate character, floral impressions (violets), red fruit and prunes. Soft, smooth fruit, full bodied. Masculine style. Firm, dry and somewhat earthy finish.
The Lagrein has a dark ruby colour, during its youth with violet, later with garnet red reflexes. 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. Recommended pairings are game, red meat and ripened cheese
