This wine, which is growing only in Alto Adige, is recognisable by its intense deep violet colour. Its aroma of forest fruits an violets, and its full, velvety body make it perfect for festive occasions. When aged, it still makes an exquisite accompaniment for meat dishes or partner for a meditative mood.

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.
On the southern slopes surrounding Bolzano, the Schiava and Lagrein grapes ripen, which this round red wine is made. The velvety taste and the typical aroma with hints of almonds and violets give character to this appreciated wine.
