Lagrein
lagrein
In addition to Pinot Noir and Schiava, this is one of Alto Adige’s leading red wine varieties. Lagrein is an autochthonous wine filled with character. Its origins are deeply rooted in the provincial capital of Bolzano, and it has recently experienced a genuine renaissance. Lagrein is impressive with its aromas of berries, fresh cherries, and violets. On the palate, it demonstrates a velvety body and soft acidity. After aging in small oak casks, tones of spice lend additional charm and character to the top selections. A rosé version of the grape is also made, known as “Lagrein Kretzer” (or “Lagrein Rosato”).
