This wine, full of character, comes from selected individual vineyards stocked with vines grafted to slow growing rootstock and trained on wire trellises (Guyot). The extraordinary quality of the Lagrein Reserve stems from grapes grown under the best conditions on the loamy soils in the community of Ora with tender care of the vineyards. It is a wine of conspicuous magnitude. It presents itself as compact and very concentrated with prominent varietal character. The color is a deep, compact garnet red with violet reflections. The bouquet shows an aromatic variety characterized by violets, bitter chocolate, wild berries, licorice, and vanilla. The flavor is velvety, with soft tannins, prominent structure, very long and lasting in savor.

The producer

The family business Peter Zemmer KG is one of the oldest wineries in the Alto Adige, a winegrowing region whose tradition was already famed during the period of the Roman emperors since wine, culture, and art have been here closely intertwined throughout history. The valley floor around Cortina and the wide selection of grape varieties are as varied as the landscape, a fact which has brought special praise to winemaking in the Lowlands throughout the centuries. The wealth of varietals is without a doubt due to the climatic conditions which are especially favourable to the grapes. The wide variety of planting locations and grape varieties and the expert management of the proprietor, Helmuth Zemmer, with his sons at his side, result in a broad range of full-bodied red wines and a diverse palette of top-cru white wines.
