Alto Adige Lagrein 2015

After reading Matt Kramer’s excellent book “Matt Kramer on Wine” - I was intrigued by his description of #lagrein wine from #altoadige in 🇮🇹. I found this sole example at Total and having now enjoyed it over a week, I have to say you must try this grape and region if you like interesting and complex red wines. It really does well just south of room temperature with a mixture of bramble berry, hot stone, touch of sandalwood and very faint clove aromas. There’s a rich mouthfeel and dense mouth-coating tannins that are nevertheless very soft, plus a backdrop of minerality and acidity that just calls out to pair this most excellent wine with savory dishes. I must go forth and sing the praises of Lagrein. That this wine is not more well known is one of the great tragedies of modern wine marketing. — a year ago

Mantsch Alto Adige - Südtirol Riserva Lagrein 2011

16/20 (89/100)

Очень сочно, фруктово, пряно - малая щепотка черного перца и зеленого перца в аромате, черные ягоды, ежевика, шелковица. Достаточно полно, плотно, с хорошими танинами.

Alto Adige - Südtirol Lagrein Rosé 2016

Cranberry and a refreshing savory acidity. Not super complex but lingers enjoyably. I'm having fun getting to know the many facets of the #lagrein grape, this one from #altoadige — 4 years ago

Berger Gei Südtirol Lagrein Gries 2015

Brooding, dark and Syrah-like. Raspberry, cocoa powder, game juices...suffused with Alpine minerality. A definite iron fist/velvet glove. #lagrein #niedrist #südtirol — 3 years ago

Searching for #Lagrein to pair with dinner, came with this #wine. Opened nicely to lots of deep, smooth, black fruited flavors. Low acid & tannin, smooth. Bulk of experience was fruit with subtle characters differentiating in the nose and on the palate finish. Purple and pink flowers, wild blackberry. Perfumed. Finish had some spice, rising fruit acid.
