ALTO ADIGE LAGREIN RISERVA DOC 
FRAUENRIGL 2016

$49.00

Lagrein is South Tyrol's oldest autochthonous vine. It grows best in the deep, warm soil of Bolzano (Gries) and the area known as Unterland (Kurtatsch), which arose out of loamy sand deposits from rivers and streams. The Frauenrigl wine-growing area is a very warm site, directly above the Wine Road and northwest of the village of Kurtatsch. Here, Lagrein reaches optimum ripeness and can bring its full potential to fruition. The seductive Frauenrigl has opulent fruit, including wild berries, elderberries, black cherry and cocoa beans. The wine takes on balsamic tannins as it matures in barrique. During subsequent aging in large wooden barrels, the fine toasting of the wood and zesty acidity attain a harmonious balance with the powerful, fruity body. It is said that the best Lagrein not only shows great concentration and length in the finish, but also a unique earthy note. The loamy soil is responsible for the wine's typical site characteristics, which gives a piquant spiciness to the long and exquisitely fruity finish.

TERROIR

FRAUENRIGL 280-350M

In former times, Rigl meant “small plot of land” in South Tyrol. Frauenrigl (Frauen = women) derived from the fact that women were frequently the property owners in this situation. It is the red clay above the Wine Road that gives our Lagrein its distinctive spiciness. The extremely warm site, situated between 280 and 350 meters in altitude, serves the heat-loving Lagrein well.
