Lagrein is sort of the Dolcetto of Alto Adige, the bold but flexible everyday red that pairs perfectly with cheese, sausage and savory main courses. This one’s a beauty, ripe and dark and loaded with earthy cherry and plum fruit and bitter chocolate notes. The texture is generous and round- making it a nice sipper – but bright acidity and fine tannins let it shine at table. Delicious and fine value!
