Trentino- Alto-Adige, ItalyLagrein is said to have been mentioned in association with Alto Adige in a historical document dated 1370. It is a descendant of teroldego and is related to syrah, pinot noir and dureza. The name suggests its origins lie in the Lagarina Valley of Trentino. Today it flourishes in the warm sites in the Bolzano River basin where the soils are high in sand content, gravel and igneous rocks. This is red-fruited wine with an attractive plum fruit nose and a palate mixed with forest floor, leather, chocolate and spices. The style is fresh, and the tannins are light. It is fermented in both stainless steel and concrete vessels seldom reaching more than 12.5 alcohol. Perfect for grilled chicken.Tasted: 29 September 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 25.99 private wine stores Producer: Alois LagederDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
