Lagaria Merlot 1999
The appellation's green, rolling hills, at the feet of the imposing Dolomitic mountain range in northeastern Italy, are ideally situated for viticulture. The cool temperatures and night/day, winter/summer temperature extremes, endow local wines, both red and white, with a particular freshness and a strong backbone of acidity. Because of Trentino's historical position as a crossroads between Italy and the German and Eastern European cultures, grape varieties are diverse, and comprise both the indigenous and the international.
Lagaria was named after the region's stunning Val Lagarina: a kaleidoscope of color and light crowned by the severe peaks of the Dolomites. This beautiful natural setting was also the inspiration for the exclusive label, specially designed by Maria Gemma Empson.
All three wines are 100% varietals from vineyards ranging in altitude from 250 to 500 meters above sea level. The fine terrain and exposure, together with state-of-the-art equipment and classic vinification, are conducive to exemplary, yet appealingly accessible varietals.
In fact, the Empsons' objective in creating Lagaria, was to offer customers a price-conscious product that did not allow for any compromise in terms of quality - in other words, simply unbelievable value for money.
