South Tyrolean Lagrein LATUS DOC
Lagrein - autochthonous varietal
Wine growing area: The Lagrein vines, some of which are over 45 years old, grow in Gries near Bozen and in Auer in the South Tyrolean Lowlands. Perfect climatic conditions prevail for the Lagrein grape to mature at the carefully selected vineyards, with sand and gravel soils located at an altitude between 220 – 300 metres.
Vinification: After a short maceration time, the selected grapes are fermented for about 12 days at a constant temperature of 28°C. This wine is then aged for 12 months in French barriques and large oak barrels.
Harvest and Yield: The Lagrein grapes are picked by hand with the utmost care when they are perfectly ripe for harvesting in late September. The vines produce a yield of 58 hectolitres per hectare.
Recommended with: This Lagrein is an excellent accompaniment to red meats, game and mature cheese.
