Bottega Vinai Lagrein Dunkel Trentino DOC

2016

In a Nutshell

A combination of vibrant bitter cherry and plum fruit with darker, spicier notes.

Tasting Notes

A warm spicy nose with smoky aromas which mingle with red berries and a hint of chocolate. The palate is rich and robust, dry and finely structured with smooth tannins and a very typically Italian bitter cherry twist, leading to bramble fruit on the finish.

Production Notes

Produced from fruit grown in the Valle del Sarca, on loose stony-limestone soils which benefit from the warm wind coming from Lake Garda. Lagrein prefers warm, sheltered areas and produces wine of noteworthy concentration and complexity. '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.
