    Winemaker Notes

    The Lagrein varietal is indigenous to Trentino and has been cultivated in the hillside vineyards of Sorni and Pressano for many decades. This wine is made using grapes harvested from vines that are 15–20 years of age. The wine spends 2 months in oak and 3–4 months in bottle before release.

    This wine is a ruby red color with violet tones when young, turning to light garnet when mature. Spicy blackberry and cherry notes on the nose that on the palate develop into deep berry fruit flavors accented by hints of soft leather, tobacco and mint. Rich, soft and medium-bodied.

    Match with grilled meats and soft cheeses.

    Officially established in 1948, Cantina La Vis is located in a village that shares its name, in the heart of the Avisiane hills. The 1980 Progetto Zonazione (Zoning Project), whose motto was "the right vine at the right place," was the foundation for the quality of La Vis wines. Studies and research under the "Progetto Qualità, linked to the zoning project, have led La Vis agronomists and oenologists to identify outstanding vineyards, their wines becoming part of the Autoctoni, Ritratti and Bio lines, the company’s high-end labels.

    The Autoctoni line satisfies the need to bring high-quality Trentino wines to the market, with grapes that really exalt the genius loci. This is the case with the gentle Sette Fontane Nosiola, the subtle Piaggi Schiava, the strong Rover Terodego, the surprising L’Altro Manzoni Maso Franch Incrocio Manzoni, the elegant Lagrein Greggi, and the high mineral Cadrobbi Müller Thurgau.

    The richness and variety of the land has also meant international varieties have found a preferred location in the Trentino area over the past century. The Ritratti line is grown in locations of the highest prestige, proposing the fine Del Diaol Chardonnay, the fragrant Maso Clinga Gewürztraminer, the aromatic Maso Tratta Sauvignon, the intense Cabernet Sauvignon, the enveloping Pinot Noir or the wonderfully refreshing Pinot Grigio.

    Ever true to their respect of the land, some members have chosen to embrace the Bio (organic) cause, thus leading to the creation of the award-winning Ai Padri Gewürztraminer, the complex Manci Chardonnay, the elegant Arcadia Pinot Grigio and the fragrant and fruity Nailam Marzemino wines, all grown on the Trento hills.

    The range is completed by the Simboli line, created to satisfy the requests of wine lovers who like their food at restaurants to be accompanied by excellent wines, everyday, and the Storie di Vite line. Although maintaining the pleasant and authentic character of Trentino wines, these two lines are specifically targeted at the modern market, reflecting an offer that is becoming increasingly popular with families.

    Last but not least, the two new LA VIS sparkling wines, the 100% white Chardonnay and the Rosé (Chardonnay and Pinot Nero grapes), are also highly appreciated.

    Trentino-Alto Adige

    View all products

    A mountainous northern Italian region heavily influenced by German culture, Trentino-Alto Adige is actually made up of two separate but similar regions: Alto Adige and Trentino.

    Trentino, the southern half, is primarily Italian-speaking and largely responsible for the production of non-native, international grapes. There is a significant quantity of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Merlot produced. But Trentino's native and most unique red variety, Teroldego, while still rare, is gaining popularity. It produces a deeply colored red wine rich in wild blackberry, herb, coffee and cocoa.

    The rugged terrain of German-speaking Alto Adige (also referred to as Südtirol) focuses on small-scale viticulture, with great value placed on local varieties—though international varieties have been widely planted since the 1800s. Sheltered by the Alps from harsh northerly winds, many of the best vineyards are at extreme altitude but on steep slopes to increase sunlight exposure.

    Dominant red varieties include the bold, herbaceous Lagrein and delicate, strawberry-kissed, Schiava, in addition to some Pinot Nero.

    The primary white grapes are Pinot grigio, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay and Pinot blanc, as well as smaller plantings of Sauvignon blanc, Müller Thurgau. These tend to be bright and refreshing with crisp acidity and just the right amount of texture. Some of the highest quality Pinot grigio in Italy is made here.

    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.
