PRESTIGE GRIESER LAGREIN RISERVA Südtirol • Alto Adige DOC 2020
Lagrein, one of the most typical red wine varieties of Alto Adige and the Bolzano Winery, thrives on the valley floor around Bolzano with its pronounced diurnal temperature variations. Only selected grapes from yield-controlled vines on the best sites are used to produce the Prestige Grieser Lagrein Riserva. The wine is an impenetrable garnet in color, offers superb aromas on the nose and has a persistent harmonious aftertaste.
