ALTO ADIGE - SÜDTIROL DOC
Lagrein, an autochthonous grape variety, has been cultivated for centuries in South Tyrolean vineyards. The variety was first documented in 1526. In order to attain a correct polyphenolic ripeness, this variety requires high temperatures during ripening periods and therefore the hills surrounding the river Adige are particularly suited to its cultivation. Of a ruby red colour with deep violet hues, Dürer-Weg Lagrein aroma has fruity notes evoking raspberries, blueberries and violet. On the palate it is warm and dry, with soft and sweet tannins.
