Bottega Vinai Lagrein Dunkel Trentino DOC

2013

In a Nutshell

An interesting, characterful red from this indigenous grape - fresh and sappy, a great food wine

Tasting Notes

Rich and robust with smoky wood aromas which mingle with red berries, spices and a hint of chocolate on the nose. The palate is dry and finely structured with smooth tannins and a very typically Italian cherry and sweet and sour twist, leading to brambles on the finish.

Production Notes

'Dunkel' is traditionally vinified as red wine at 28-29 degrees C with long maceration on the skins in small stainless steel tanks. It is then moved to barriques for 12-14 months and subsequently matured in large oak casks for a further 6 months.
