100% Lagrein, an ancient grape native to the Italian Alps. It is similar in flavor and texture to Syrah.
Lagrein has a characteristically north-Italian fresh, acidic structure and a slightly astringent finish. It is dense and dark purple/ruby in color. It has aromas of raspberries and plums with spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. On the palate, it is a bit lighter than expected with a spry acidity that makes it an excellent food wine.
Traditionally, Lagrein wines are consumed with Speck. This is a wine that works well with warm, hearty winter dishes.
