Lagrein

Sigis Mundus 2017

  • Tasting notes

    The colour is impressively deep, almost black, tinged with violet; open on the nose with concentrated aromas of violets, blackberries and black cherries, all well-integrated with savoury flavours, coffee and dark chocolate. A powerful and supple wine with assertive, youthful tannins and superb length.

    Cellaring potential: 8 – 10 years.

  • Food Combination

    The wine’s formidable structure makes it an excellent match for pan-seared rib eye steak, roast beef, game, balsamic roast pork, mature cheeses.

    Serve cool: 16° C.

  • Grape Variety
    Lagrein from 50 year-old pergola-trained vines.
  • Location

    The vines are planted in deep, alluvial soils – gravel, eroded granite and porphyry – in the classic Lagrein area of Gries on the outskirts of Bolzano. The warm climate in the Bolzano valley basin is ideal for the heat-loving Lagrein vine.

  • Wine Making
