Bottega Vinaia Lagrein 2003
from Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy
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.
