Lagrein

Riserva Südtirol Lagrein 2012

Interesting bottle enjoyed tonight. This comes from a region of Italy that is very close to Austria, any region where most people speak German. Don't think I've ever had a Lagrein before. Surprisingly medium-plus bodied. Thought it would have been leaner. News of plum, bacon fat, raspberry pie. The entry of this is surprisingly sweet. More of a mulberry and a hint of tart cherry, with the middle going to more of a forest floor, mushroom risotto. Finishes actually quite round for a young wine that I believe has many years ahead of it. Not sure I would have guessed this one was Italian if served blind. Went well with the mushroom, spinach and herb butternut squash lasagna. — 13 days ago

@Shay A If you do stop and they aren’t tasting it, ask. They are pretty good about opening bottles if the have them in stock at the tasting room. Including, his Hendricks Cabernet.

They said Foradori-level good. And they were right. A teeny amount of petillance, but it’s super clean and correct. Savory and plummy; a bit low in acidity. Why isn’t everyone on LI planting Teroldego? Fantastic stuff. — 23 days ago

Tor Di Lupo Lagrein 2015

Really trying to get an understanding of the Lagrein grape while in its home region of Italy. This is a nice one, but quite different in style than the Nusserhof we had the other night. Deep dark violet in the glass. After an hour of air, quite nice aromatically, with deep dark fruits coming through and the initial oak note blowing off. Full bodied, with a fair bit of young tannin - which made it a great pairing for simple meats from a rustic wood grille. Nice long finish with good acid. — 19 days ago
