With vines climbing almost vertically up the narrow Alpine valleys, Alto Adige DOC is home to one of the world’s most breathtaking vineyards. This is where K.Martini & Sohn, a Swiss-Italian winemaking family, grow the grapes for this delicious, dry red wine. The family has been creating premium Lagrein in this mountainous region since 1979. Medium in body, the wine has complex aromas of violets, blackberries, dried roses, dark chocolate, cherries and pepper. Its gentle tannins melt into a long finish. It’s unsurprising that this delicious wine has won a prestigious Decanter Silver award.

  1. Tcook

    Wonderful deep rich flavour, I really liked this wine. Nice balance of fruit and spice. Great taste, had it eating steak in the garden on sunny evening, accompanied it well. Full of flavour but not overpowering.

  2. Martin Isark

    Class Act. A red wine that has been beautifully crafted: the fruit, tannins, and the acidity all beat in perfect harmony. Worth every grape.
