2015 Allettare Alto Adige Lagrein

Coming from the northern mountainous region of Alto Adige, the vines benefit from a cooler climate, allowing the fruit to ripen perfectly. Lagrein, a variety indigenous to Italy, is characterized by a vibrant magenta hue and both aromas and flavors of plum, and this stellar example has both in spades. Aromas and flavors of blue and red plum greet you in the glass, along with Maraschino cherry, followed by polished tannins on the finish, providing lovely structure to the plump, ripe fruit. Enjoy this delightful wine with feathered game and pork dishes for a sublime experience.
