The ideal location of our Gries Lagrein Riserva in the historical vineyard of Gries, in Bozen, arouses its fruity and savory aromas of ripe fruit, cherry and chocolate. The heat of Bozen's circular valley lends it velvety elegance, a soft body and vivid freshness, with well-integrated tannins. With its fruity finish, it is the perfect partner for lamb, game and red, grilled meats.

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.
A grape with small berries that has been cultivated in South Tyrol for decades, and which prevails in an aristocratic red wine. With its strong flowery bouquet, velvety finish and fine tannic quality, this wine is perfectly suitable as an accompaniment to meat dishes.
In colour it is deep ruby-garnet with a typical aroma of undergrowth, small berry fruits and black cherry - mellow, sweet and inviting. On the palate it is warm, harmonious and well-knit, round and rich in complexities, firm though elegant, broad and velvety, enveloping with the grace and refinement of a truly international wine which will become even more impressive after a further one to two years in bottle.
