Soil: Deep, sandy alluvial soils.
Viticulture: Hand harvested. Guyot and pergel training system. Vinification: Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel for eight days.
Aging: Aged in large wooden barrels of 30-50HL for at least six months.
Lagrein is an ancient dark-skinned Italian variety from the Trentino-Alto Adige region, Northern Italy. Deep colored and richly textured with excellent mouthfeel, Lagrein exhibits plum and wild cherry flavors and is suited to barrel maturation. While lacking in tannins, Lagrein has a characteristically north Italian fresh, acidic structure and a slightly astringent finish, making it best paired with food.
