Bottega Vinai Lagrein Dunkel Trentino DOC
Cavit's Bottega Vinai Lagrein Dunkel is a valid example of Lagrein from Trentino. The grapes are grown in the best exposed areas hills of Valle dell'Adige and Vallagarina. The vinification is traditional. Fermentation that takes place at a temperature of 28-29 °C in small stainless steel tanks with long maceration on the skins, to maximize the contact between must and solid parts. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is moved into barriques, to carry out malolactic fermentation and to age from 12 to 14 months. Before bottling, it undergoes further aging in small oak barrels for another 4-6 months.
Lagrein Dunkel has a very intense ruby red colour. Fruity aromas reminiscent of raspberry, red currant, blackberry and vanilla. The olfactory complexity is also found on the palate, in all its fullness. A wine of remarkable structure, which presents a perfect balance between tannins and acidity, pleasantly lively and persistent to the taste. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 16-18 °C.
