Vinification: Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel at 30°C for 14 days, maceration and organic acid reduction in stainless steel tanks, maturation in small wooden barrels for at least 15 months.
Description: Colour: intensive, dark garnet red. Nose: complex and multi-layered, ripe berry aromas with cherries and barberries, tangy notes of tobacco and leather, elements of liquorice and eucalyptus, forest soils, dense and full. Taste: convincing structure, finesse and character, soft and velvety nature combined with concentration and extract, finely integrated acidic base, pronounced tannins, fresh and invitingly drinkable, persistent quality - truly one of the most authentic and best interpretations of the native South Tyrolean Lagrein grape.
Matching: this wine deserves pride of place and should accompany fine cuisine: it is a wine to enjoy and discover, requiring some time in the glass to develop properly.
