Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

On selected rocky-calcareous soil at mid-altitude in the Valle dei Laghi (Valley of Lakes), Lagrein finds the perfect growing conditions. With good sun exposure and aeration, the warm breeze from the Lake Garda keeps the berries dry, an important condition for a varietal that may have budding difficulties resulting from humidity.

Complex, with strong scents of vanilla, violets and wild berries, tending to musk and burnt wood with aging.

Well-structured and balanced, with a harmony between tannins and acidity that renders it soft and velvety with a persistent finish.
