Lagrein DOC Südtirol Riserva
100% Lagrein. From vines ranging from 20 to 90 years old, trained on wires in both guyot and the local casarsa style. The farming is certified organic and harvest is by hand. The grapes are destemmed, fermented spontaneously with native yeasts and with a 4-week maceration in stainless steel. The wine is aged in French oak botti for 2 years, followed by at least 2 more two years in bottle (far exceeding the DOC Südtirol Lagrein requirement of 3 years' aging for riserva status). A small amount of sulfur is added after fermentation and at bottling only.
