Kellerei Kaltern Solos Lagrein Riserva 2012 Kellerei Kaltern Solos Lagrein Riserva 2012

One of Italy's most under-rated red grapes, Lagrein is often made into fun and friendly quaffing wine, perfect for parties and pizza.  But with a little love, Lagrein's fun-loving personality can take on remarkable profundity.  Here the wine grows on alluvial sediments at 250 meters elevation.  The deep, sandy, soils warm easily in spring, allowing the 25-35 year-old Lagrein vines to develop intense color, great power, and layered depth.  Fermentation and aging in French oak plus extra time in bottle brings everything together into a delicious red that's light enough to sip and sophisticated enough to pair with lamb at table.

The wood has pretty much integrated fully now, showing mainly as a rich spice component to the dark red and black berry fruit.  There's a touch of earthy licorice root down somewhere deep, giving the blackberry pie and black raspberry fruit flavors a savory, sophisticated, flair.  Wood and time in bottle have tamed the grape's sometimes agressive tannins, allowing it to finish long and rich and very smooth.  Delicious now - 2022 at least.
