This blend of the great Bordeaux classic varieties, Merlot and Cabernet, sees the full-bodied, soft and elegant flavour of the Merlot married to that of the well-grounded, spicy Cabernet. The result is a wine that truly beguiles the palate.
A fruit-packed combination of two charming, substantial and smooth red wines for a long-lasting and harmonious romance. The ripe tannins and fruity notes of the Bordeaux classic meet the zestiness and floral nuances of the Lagrein in the barrel. Raise a glass to this sensually soft, full-bodied love affair.
The cuvée MABON is a great combination of Lagrein and Merlot, in which the fruitiness of the local grape variety Lagrein and the specific characteristic of the French variety Merlot are united. The maturing process in oak barrels ensures that the wine has an elegant, harmonious body.
Lagrein Riserva Bright garnet red. The nose is reminiscent of cherries and berries; the wooden notes are well integrated. Soft entry with complex and strong evolution. Long finish and delicate velvety tannins on the finish. Barbagòl: The Ladin name derives from legends of the Dolomites and means »Warlock who enchants the senses«
Lagrein, Merlot, Pinot Nero IGT Our most important grape varieties Lagrein Merlot and Pinot Noir form a blend that expresses pure joy of life. Fruity, spicy, smoothy, a red wine cuvée with intense, delicate berry aromas and light spice. The velvety, round mouthfeel guarantees simulating drinking pleasure.
This wine is our interpretation of a juicy red wine produced in the mountains. Its name refers to the pleasure of enjoying life, also hinted at in a saying printed on the wine label. This saying is originally found in an inscription from the 16th-century located on of the the Juval castle gates placed there by the then overlord for the count of Tyrol Hanns Sinckhmoser zu Jufal.
The Cuveé from Vernatsch and a small part of Lagrein has been practiced in South Tyrol for many decades. In the past, however, the blend with Lagrein was used more to enhance the high-yield and therefore weak Vernatsch taste. Today, however, the Vernatsch grape variety can also stand alone due to the yield regulation. For me, the Lagrein serves rather as a mutual complement and not as an upgrade. The combination of fruitiness and soft tannins make this wine. The grapes were removed directly from the stem frame with the stripping machine and filled into the steel tank without a grape crusher. Dispensing with the grape squeezer enables a portion of whole, intact berries and reduces the proportion of sediment particles. In addition, the intact berries undergo intracellular fermentation (Maceration Carbonique), which gives the fermenting must a particular fruity and freshness after pressing. In contrast, however, part of the stem structure (approx. 20%) was left in the mash, which ensures a light tannin structure and makes the wine more durable. The fermentation (partly intracellular fermentation) took place for 10 days in steel tanks with daily, very gentle pushing of the mash cake. The mash was then pressed (very gently with a maximum pressure of 1 bar). The young wine was drawn off immediately after pressing after 3 days of natural sedimentation and matured in steel barrels for 10 months in order to maintain the freshness and fruitiness as much as possible.
The Klosteranger is a historical single site protected by the old monastery wall at the heart of MURI-GRIES. It offers the perfect terroir for our Lagrein Riserva Vigna Klosteranger: an expressive single-vineyard wine as the product of the authentic interpretation of terroir and grape variety, concentrated and honest. The wine pairs well with braised game, lightly roasted beef and spicy cheese dishes.
This wine, full of character, comes from selected individual vineyards stocked with vines grafted to slow-growing rootstock and trained on wire trellises (Guyot) or on the pergola. The grapes of this cuvée grow under the best conditions on the valley floor around the village of Cortina s.s.d.v. The favourable location of the vineyards, the ideal amount of sun, and the fine ventilation of the vines assures the ripening of grapes of exceptional quality.
