Color: Deep impenetrable ruby with violet reflections.
Smell: This Lagrein selection is a multifaceted wine. It reveals aromas reminiscent of morello cherry and bilberry, with notes of licorice, coffee beans, vanilla, clove and black tea, which makes it spicy and fruity at the same time.
Taste: The wine is harmonious on the palate with very compact and concentrated, multilayered flavors combining juicy fruit with spicy, peppery elements and a slightly sweet note of dark chocolate rounded off with silky tannins.
Simple pairings: Perfect with pink roasted saddle of venison in a walnut crust with root vegetables and red cabbage, rib of beef braised in Lagrein with mixed polenta and baby vegetables, or braised calf's cheek with Lagrein sauce on celeriac foam.
Wine SpectatorAn inky red, with mineral and graphite notes lacing flavors of black currant and plum pie, licorice and fig cake, this is well-knit and mouthwatering, an elegant version with supple tannins lending some grip to the spiced finish. Drink now through 2022. 100 cases imported.
