Lagrein Riserva Glassier - 2016 - Winery Glassierhof - Stefan Vaja
Allergic-Info: This wine can contain sulfites
The colour: dark ruby. A smell of raspberries and strawberries, a grace of blackberries. A complicated and, nevertheless, harmonious body, severity and acid in the unison, hard and concentrated. A velvety, persistent departure.
Color: intensive ruby to garnet red. Smell: The Pinot Noir presents itself as a multifaceted wine on the nose, where the delicate primary fruit aromas of wild strawberries and blackberries blend with restrained aromas of tobacco and flint, and notes of white field mushrooms. Taste: Well balanced with a mineral elegance that makes it dance on the palate. This red wine has a long and exciting finish.
Medium intense ruby colour with a garnet shimmer. Still somewhat closed, clean uplifted varietal aroma: impressions of red berry fruit, cherries along with oak spice (white pepper, cinnamon). Quite pronounced flavour, medium bodied. Fresh finish with good length and a presence of spicy tannin. Elegant style.
IUGUM (iou-gum) is a made up name. It means "yoke" in Latin. A yoke is that wooden piece with hitched oxen into pairs, but the word "Iugum" is also used in very early agricultural texts in reference to tines being trained on a support.
A saturated bordeaux red, a delicate aroma of berries, chocolate and tabac. Elegant tannins underscore the wine's complexity; a smooth finish with a touch of warmth accompanies its fiery finale.
