Erste & Neue, Lagrein 2013


  • Grape Variety: Lagrein

Erste & Neue, Lagrein, Alto Adige, Italy 2013

With less than 500ha planted in Alto Adige and probably the world, this ancient local grape variety, Lagrein, is hard to find. This is a very dry style, opening up with black cherry, earthy notes and black pepper. A little rustic, it is tannic and acidic with an electric energy in the mouth making it ideal with food. Decant 30 minutes before serving.
