Product information

Description

Lagrein is a grape native to the South Tyrol, related to the Teroldego variety, and shares its ability to produce a vast amount of grapes with a tendency towards leanness if not handled properly.  At Terlano, yields are kept low and the grapes harvested only when fully ripe, and then Rudi Köfler can work his magic in the cellar.  The wine is deep purple-red, bright and the nose has very pure expressions of black cherry, cassis - very fragrant, with earthy notes underlying the fruit.  The palate is very clean, minerally with gentle tannins, the grapes natural acidity adding balance and freshness to the whole berry fruits.  This is a very good wine, surprisingly complex and I'm fast becoming a convert to this distinctive variety.
