Winemaking Notes: The grapes are traditionally fermented in stainless steel. Malolactic fermentation occurs in big oak barrels. The wine is left to mature in wooden casks and in the bottle before release.
Tasting Notes: Lagrein Perl is the deliciously balanced and seductive. It is intense and complex on the nose with floral notes of rose petals and violets. Red berry fruits like cherry also show on the nose. There is a hint of coca bean. The palate is smooth with velvety tannins and a light mineral component. The Bolzano Lagrein Perl will go well with savory and meaty dishes.
Vintage Impressions: "To be perfectly clear, the 2017, 2016 and 2015 wines I tasted from Alto Adige this year were some of the most impressive in memory, especially the reds. In fact, I do not recall a better regional performance this year than what I saw in Alto Adige." - Ian D'Agata, Vinous 12/4/2018
