Lagrein

Alto Adige's powerful ambassador of the region

Although it had nearly died out by the end of the 1970s, Lagrein has in the meantime conquered a constantly growing fan base. The indigenous wine filled with character has its roots in Bolzano and is impressive with its velvety fullness and soft acidity. The noble, spicy tones are accompanied by fruity berries, fresh cherries, and violets. When aged in small oak casks, Lagrein unfolds its elegant, full-bodied presence. A rosé version is also made from the grape, known as “Lagrein Rosato” (or “Lagrein Kretzer”).
