2017 Castelfeder, Lagrein, Rieder (RT91) Harvested from another indigenous grape to the South Tyrol, Lagrein prospers in the lower elevation valley floor vineyards of the region where it can bask in the sun and mature slowly. It is aged for 10 months in used barrique, lending additional structure to the wine. This lovely, ruby garnet hued wine wafts up notes of black cherry, smoke, crushed gravel and hints of purple flowers with a peppery spiciness. It is quite tasty on the palate, with charismatic fruit, soft tannin and bright acidity. A lovely every-day drinking expression of the variety. Drink now-2025
