Lagrein 2015

75cl Elena Walch Lagrein Italy > Alto Adige Rich, full-bodied, elegant and complex
Lagrein, a regional red speciality, rarely seen outside of the province of Bolzano a decade ago, is a hugely enjoyable wine. It is full-bodied with superbly ripe blackberry fruit, a smooth velvety palate, discreet tannins and admirable length

In 1985, winemaking graduate and former architect, Elena Walch took over two magnificent and historic estates. Castel Ringberg, which overlooks the lake of Caldaro, and Kastelaz, a steep, south-facing hillside at Tramin.The wines are recognised throughout Italy and worldwide as being truly first-rate, having scooped many of Italy’s highest awards including the coveted Gambero Rosso three glasses for many years in a row. Tasting these wines with Elena and Werner Walch, we were astonished at the dazzling array of bottlings from various local and international varieties and crus and the overall marvellous quality of the entire range.
