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.

My Notes:

About Bottega Vinaia:

Bottega Vinaia, an exceptional limited production "Cru" varietal wine from nothern Italy, marks a new direction for Trentino-based Cavit, one of the most respected and successful wine producers in Italy. As a result of its long standing affiliation with many thousands of growers throughout northern Italy, Cavit's ability to first pinpoint then access a handful of vineyards that consistently produce outstanding quality grapes is literally second to none. From this unique position stems Cavit's resolve to showcase the wines of these extraordinary vineyards under the new and separate Bottega Vinaia label.
