Lagrein - KurtatschVinarius
This is a mountain wine from the Dolomites Alps in Italy. Lagrein grape is related to the Syrah and Pinot Noir and the name probably comes from the Lagarina valley in the Trentino region.
Deep dark red in colour with some purple shades and a very rich nose with blackberry, blueberry and a touch of mint. The palate is velvety, intense and full-bodied with summer pudding reminiscences and a rustic (almost shy) finish..... as you expect from a real mountaineer.
