Lagrein
lagrein
In addition to Pinot Noir and Schiava, this is one of Alto Adige’s leading red wine varieties. Lagrein is an indigenous wine filled with character. Its origins are deeply rooted in 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 the top selections additional charm and character. A rosé version of the
grape is also made, known as “Lagrein Kretzer” (or “Lagrein Rosato”).
