In the cellar, for the making of this wine, the red berries of the Lagrein grape are squeezed out in the wine press. Thus, it obtains its glowing dark salmon color, a somewhat darker-than-usual shade for a rosé wine. Mildly spicy, with a juicy and fruity taste of red berries and hints of licorice, it feels soft and delicate on the palate. With its elegant structure, this wine promises an enchanting aperitif experience and may also deliciously accompany light starters such as fish and poultry dishes.
At an elevation of 260 meters above sea level, in one of the last remaining Lagrein-growing terrains of Gries in Bozen, the 80-year-old vines are rooted in a sandy clay porphyry alluvial soil with rocky sediments. Raised according to certified ecological principals, the vines are partially trained on pergolas and partially Guyot-pruned on espalier.
Vinification and Aging
Only grapes from selected vines are harvested, pressed and fermented for the making of the Lakrez. Organic acid reduction takes place in stainless steel tank.
In the glass, the Lakrez sparkles in a dark salmon glow, a shade of red that is somewhat darker than that of a common rosé wine. Its bouquet reveals fragrances of ripe red berries and hints of licorice. On the palate, this wine is mildly spicy and exposes a well-integrated and balanced acidity, ending in a long, fruity finish.
