WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "As a rule, the Lagrein grape offers thick, blackish color saturation, dark fruit aromas and soft tannins. The 2015 Alto Adige Lagrein Riserva Gries offers all those things with the addition of barbecue spice, Spanish cedar and black licorice. This is a sophisticated expression with depth and a fine sense of dimension."
Winemaker notes; The alluvial soils in the Bolzano suburb of Gries are ideal for the indigenous red Lagrein wine, which is mentioned in a historical document dated 1379. Terlano's Lagrein Gries is impressive for its fruity berry aromas as well as for its noble spicy notes and juicy balanced body.
