Complex and refined with hints of violets, cinnamon and red berry fruits.
Deion: Lagrein is one of South Tyrol's native varieties. Very dark garnet in colour with violet reflexes, and an aroma of violets, black woodland berry fruits (bilberry and blackberry) with hints of plain chocolate; mouth-filling and spicy on the palate with ripe, velvety tannins and enormous length. Lagrein now ranks among Italy's top wines and its unique character - sturdy but without the mouth-puckering toughness which spoils the enjoyment of so many classic red wines - has made it a favourite the world-over.
Food Choices: An excellent partner for beef, lamb and venison dishes in reduced sauces; it is also a favourite with typical Tyrolean platters of cured meats and cheeses.

The apricots prefer a warm climate and love the sun, for it few rains and richly wind. So also those of the Luggin's which are making vinegar them. This vinegar is fruity and has slightly sweet marks, a successful aperitif with Prosecco.
