Top Alto Adige Lagrein

8. Lagrein Cornell Sigis Mundus Barrique Cantina Produttori Colterenzio DOC Italien Alto Adige Rotwein Cl (2009)

« Prev Next » 8 of 20
This smells strongly of chocolate covered espresso beans. Rich and inviting with a base of toasty oak and jammy black fruit squeezing out the edges. On entry, there is a hint of violet and then smooth, rich almost chewy (but too well balanced to be chewy) fruit. This strikes as a very important wine, packed with fresh fruit in the mouth and then finishing a little light and spicy with more oak than you find on the palate. Sort of embryonic with a nice suggestion of vanilla on the nose and more chocolate on the palate. It’s all embedded in rich and dark, slightly dried berry fruit. 92pts
