The garnet red color holds promise of strong aromas and opulence: Growing in the warm soils of Bozen's circular valley, its fruity and zesty bouquet is reminiscent of chocolate, ripe cherry and violets. The long maturation favors the Lagrein's soft tannins and a pleasant freshness, followed by an impressive finish. A wine of choice with game, game birds and stewed dishes.

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
The alluvial soils comprising a mixture of gravel, clay and eroded porphyry sand impart body, depth and structure to this wine.
