    Alto Adige

    Taking full advantage of direct sunlight exposure on its steep slopes, many of Alto Adige’s best vineyards are planted at extreme altitude. It is sheltered by the Alps from cold northerly winds and certain locations experience warm and bright sunshine throughout the growing season, allowing for even ripening of grapes. Dominant red varieties include the bold, herbaceous Lagrein and delicate, fruity Schiava, as well as some impressive, spicy Pinot Noir. The primary white grapes are Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc, as well as smaller plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, Müller Thurgau, and others. Alto Adige whites are typically bright and crisp.

    Lagrein

    View all products

    Incredibly concentrated in ripe blackberry and uncommonly sturdy in character, Lagrein balances its intensity with a gorgeous perfume reminiscent of fresh herbs, cut grass, juniper and violets. On the palate, bright red cherries and a savory splash lighten up its often hefty, but usually smooth, tannins. Deeply rooted in the Alto Adige area, Lagrein has recently experienced a great renaissance. While the climate is cool there, the sun is intense. The best Lagrein usually comes from the warm slopes near the bustling city of Bolzano. Lagrein Kretzer (German) or Rosato (Italian) is the spicy rosé version, which is delicious with smoked fish and white meat. Try Lagrein, the red wine, with gamey meats, beef and aged cheeses.
