Erste & Neue Lagrein 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The Erste and Neue Cantine Sociale was founded in 1900 when several wine growers came together with a mission to produce their own wine rather than sell the fruit in the open market. They now have 550 wine growers from which to source the fruit, all based around Lake Kaltern. The Lagrein is an unusual grape variety mainly found in the Alto Adige. The nose offers red fruits and blackberry while the palate has fresh acidity, bright fruit structure and pert tannins. This is an approachable wine made for easy pleasure and is delicious either chilled to highlight the fruit and acidity or a little warmer to enhance the underlying black fruit and spice. It works extremely well with food, particularly game, red meat, and hard cheese.
