Lagrein wine

Vineyard of Peter Zemmer in Alto Adige DOC

Lagrein is the signature red grape of Alto Adige. Grown in the Alpine glacial valleys, it produces lean, crisp and sharp cold-climate red wines that you won't find anywhere else. The New York Times wrote that Lagrein wines combine “richness and delicacy”. They're fantastic when drank young, but also benefit from ageing as the fruity flavours become more complex.

Lagrein is a real powerhouse with lots of acid and tannin. It develops its austere character thanks to the characteristic soils of Alto Adige, which is rich in dolomite rocks and limestone with glacial deposits of gravel, sand and clay. Lagrein has become very popular overseas, and made its way to New Zealand and Australia.

One of the most surprising things about this red wine is that it tastes fantastic when it’s been slightly chilled. What does it taste like? There’s plenty of crunchy acidity to get your mouth watering, with notes of raspberry, red plum, freshly cracked pepper, chocolate and coffee.
