Lagrein Alto Adige DOC 2013

External Review by Flaschenpost Weinservice GmbH:

Intensives Rubin, violette Reflexe. Dunkle Waldbeeren, auch Veilchen und etwas Nelkenwürze in der intensiv duftenden Nase. Im Gaumen von kraftvoller Intensität, die Aromen der Nase finden sich wieder, nun auch Zimt und dunkle Schokolade, eine Spur Tabak; die charaktervolle Handschrift dieses Lagreins ist unverkennbar, leicht würzig im anhaltenden Abgang.

Taking stock of the past ten years I can confidently assert that the exceptional character of our local vineyards and grape varieties is reflected in our wines more than ever. South Tyrol’s best-known vines are cultivated in the Hofstätter wine estate.

Taking stock of the past ten years I can confidently assert that the exceptional character of our local vineyards and grape varieties is reflected in our wines more than ever. South Tyrol’s best-known vines are cultivated in the Hofstätter wine estate. We even enjoy the unique privilege of owning vineyards in the finest sites on both sides of the Adige River in southern South Tyrol. However, it is precisely the work in the vineyards which I find the most challenging: decades of monoculture have exhausted the soils, sapped them of their vigour, the vigour which the grapevine needs to stay healthy and unfold its vitality to the full. And today the vine needs vital force more than ever before to withstand the increasingly extreme weather conditions. The word ‘terroir’ is often bandied about, as if it referred to an established factor, while in reality it is subject to the very same fluctuations that the far-sighted winegrower is confronted with in his daily work. He needs to recognise the elementary preconditions necessary for vines to yield superlative, distinctive, unmistakable wines, cultivating, fine-tuning and focusing his methods. This is the only way to enhance the quality of grapes in a vineyard which has always produced excellent fruit. I am striving to attain this without advance knowledge of the extent to which the world-wide ecological challenges are to be surmounted in a small organism such as a vineyard. I am confident that a workable solution will be found! Read less

Dichtes Rubinrot. Heidelbeeren, Wacholder und pfeffrige Noten offenbaren sich in der offenen, fein parfümierten Nase, abgerundet von einem eleganten Veilchenduft. Rassiger, fast stürmischer Auftakt, abgelöst von viel Brombeerfrucht, Kirschenkompott und dem Aroma feiner Wildkräuter, sehr gut strukturiert und gehaltvoll, zartbitterer, lange anhaltender Abgang.
