2009 Bottega Vinaia Lagrein

$20.00

From the rocky-calcareous soil in the Valle dei Laghi (Valley of the Lakes), Bottega Vinaia’s Lagerin has that distinct flavor of the Alto Adige region. Warm breezes from Lake Garda keep the grapes dry before vinification and a long maceration period on the lees in small stainless steel vats. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barriques for 12 months until the wine is transferred into small oak casks before bottling.


ABV % = 12

Details

Trentino

Northern Italy's Trentino region is located in the foothills of the Dolomite Alps, along the Adige River. Most of the grapes are grown on the eastern and western slopes, which form the valley along the Adige. The area is famous for whites from Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as reds from Pinot Noir, Lagrein, and Teroldego. Most of the region makes dry still wines, but it is acclaimed for some of the best traditional method sparkling wine in the world, made under the TrentoDOC appellation from Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir.
