Castel Sallegg Lagrein Alto Adige Südtirol Riserva Castel Sallegg 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Quite aromatic and fruity, though this shows savory fruit with peppery top notes and a hint of pineapple ripeness. On the palate there is plenty of power here, and structure. This is for lack of a better word a serious Pinot Grigio that delivers great depth of flavors and impressive complexity with layers of earth, mineral, dried fruit and spice notes. One might think this is Pinot Gris, but the wine does show a bit of alcohol on the palate and the backend, just a touch which may not detract from the wine for most people but it does obscure some of the detail from the long and layered finish. 90pts

Tasting Notes:

This wine has a thick crimson red colour with violet reflexes and a convincing black core. Within the aroma flavours indicate elders, mature berries like cassis black currants and blackberries supported by floral notes which recur at the palate together with a little freshraspberry.
