Very dark, ruby red in colour. This Lagrein LATUS presents a delicate and spicy note of ripe sour cherries and forrest berries in the nose.
On the palate, it unfolds with a bold, full-bodied but lush, velvety structure with a minerally, complex and lingering finish.
The Lagrein vines, some of which are over 45 years old, grow in Auer in the South Tyrolean Lowlands and a part in Bozen. 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.
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.
After a short maceration time, the selected grapes are fermented at a constant temperature of 28°C.
This wine is then aged in French barriques and large oak barrels.
This Lagrein is an excellent accompaniment to red meats, game and mature cheese.
