Erste U. Neue Kellerei Kaltern-Lagrein Riserva Puntay Doc. Erste U. Neue Kellerei Kaltern Italien Trentino-Alto Adige Sudtirol Lagrein Erste U. Neue Kellerei Kaltern Grosse 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Nutty oak, leather, violets, crystallized flowers, a touch of animal and peppery baking spices all come together on the complex nose. This is a bit soft an entry but the acid kicks on the mid-palate, offering fine support to the rather pure, lightly plummy blackberry fruit. A streak of nutty oak runs right through the middle. There has a fair amount of toasty coffee bean on the back end and finish, which is fairly rich if rather elegant. This is quite a refined style of Lagrein with finely balanced tannic structure and good complexity. I’m not sure it's any more attractive than more rustic versions. 92pts
