Lagrein is a red wine grape variety native to the valleys of northern Italy near the border with Austria. Few things are simple in north-eastern Italy, least of all Lagrein, a red grape that can produce fresh, aromatic, highly seductive wines. When grown in cooler regions of Australia Lagrein can be highly tannic but here at Dell’uva Wines in the Western Ridge of the Barossa it produces exceptional, balanced wines.
Lagrein has a rich perfumed aroma with dark inky colour. It’s a medium to full bodied wine, rich in texture with blackberry, spice and savoury tobacco/leather/mushroom notes, and has excellent fruit integration with the French oak.
