- Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Lagrein 2011 Product #27142 (In Stock)
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.
- Muri-Gries Lagrein Alto Adige 2011 Product #26455 (In Stock)
From the hills of Alto Adige, the red Lagrein grape can give bitter, astringent, wine. Here, though, you'll find complex aromas of blackberry, blueberry, smoke, pepper and licorice. In the mouth, the blue/black fruit continues as a note of lavender joins the licorice and spice. Finishes long, pure, and fine. Juicy, vibrant, and just utterly, utterly, delicious.
"Opaque inky-ruby. Complex, deep nose combines blackberry, blueberry jelly, smoke, pepper and licorice. Silky yet dense and rich, with an insidious sweetness to its aromatic flavors of delicately smoky black fruits. Not a wine of great power or thrust but very elegantly styled and pure. The long finish features fine-grained tannins."International Wine Cellar 90 points
