Description

D rer-Weg Lagrein

Beautiful ruby red colour with deep violet hues. Dürer-Weg Lagrein aroma has fruity notes evoking raspberries, blueberries and violet. On the palate it is warm and dry, medium-bodied with soft and sweet tannins. It finishes with a smooth, pleasant and long reverberation.


Vineyard faces west, with an altitude 400m. The soil profile is silty, originating from siltstone rockslide debris. 2020 has mild sunny days with warm soils, sufficient precipitation, cool nights, and strong winds bring fruity freshness into Alto Adige wines.

Lagrein is an indigenous grape variety that has been cultivated in South Tyrol for centuries. The first mention of the Lagrein dates back to 1526. For the ideal ripening and development of the polyphenols, this vine requires high temperatures during the ripening period. The hills which frame the longitudinal course of the river Adige have proven to be particularly suitable for this purpose.

The grapes are harvested by hand in the first decade of October, gently pressed, maceration on the skins and alcoholic fermentation take place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. The must is then statically decanted. The ageing takes place in vetrified concrete tanks for 5 to 6 months on the fine yeasts, a small part is aged in oak barrels.
