Lagrein Alto-Adige DOC 2021
Moraine deposits and sandy alluvial soils
In 1907 a small group of winemakers decided to join forces in order to improve the quality of their labels, thus giving birth to the cooperative winery of San Michele Appiano, which is today a reality that counts about three hundred and fifty members for an annual production of more than two million bottles. A real and proper colossus, an absolute reference for the whole production world not only in Alto Adige, which never fails to meet expectations thanks to a range of unique reliability. From Gewürztraminer to Müller Thurgau, from Sauvignon to Riesling, from Pinot Bianco to Lagrein, each bottle is a perfect synthesis of the varietal that gave birth to it. Fresh and vibrant wines, characterized by a clear territorial appeal and by a surprising average quality.
The Lagrein grape variety is indigenous to Alto Adige and it is in this area that it is predominantly cultivated. The history of Lagrein cultivation in these lands dates back to the fourteenth century. Today it is counted among the best red wines of the region. This Lagrein has a deep dark red color, a structured body and beautiful spicy aromas.
