Lagrein is perfectly suited for lunch or rustic fare. Not overly fruity but couched in spice and savory aromas, with a compelling and intriguing allure.
Winemaker Notes: A deep, dark garnet hue instantly coats the entire glass... Rich aromas of black cherries, bergamot, black pepper, allspice and a hint of cocoa dust ... lush and savory fruit flavors rush the entire palate ... leaving an enticing and satisfying finish.
