This unique variety hails from the most northern part of Italy and is a distant relative of Pinot Noir, though they couldn’t be more different. As an homage to our Italian heritage, we planted this unique grape where it grows nicely in the warmest spot in our estate vineyard.
This deep purple wine offers scents of black currant, earth, bramble, white pepper and a hint of leather. The sassy palate is chewy and gratifying, featuring blueberry, anise, tobacco leaf and eucalyptus notes. Lagrein is extremely food friendly but pairs exceptionally well with foods from its home region such as pasta carbonara, cured meats and game stew.
