The Lagrein Trentino DOC from Lavis is a wine that enchants from the first glance with its ruby-red color enriched by violet hues. Produced mainly on the sunny hills of Lavis, this wine undergoes meticulous vinification that starts with the manual harvest of the grapes in October. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks, followed by aging on the lees, mainly in concrete tanks and partially in oak barrels, for about 5-6 months before bottling. On the nose, the bouquet is an explosion of berries like raspberries and blueberries, enriched by floral notes of violet. On the palate, the wine is dry and warm, with soft sweet tannins that envelop the mouth in a velvety embrace. This Lagrein is the ideal pairing for hot appetizers and meat-based first courses, reaching its maximum expression when paired with goulash with canederli or roe deer with black cranberries.
