About Lagrein

Historically the Lagrein Rosato was the original form of vinification of Lagrein grapes.

The Lagrein grape has thick skin and blue-black color.

The tecnique to extract the Rosé color is the same as making white wine: short contact with the skin.

In the 1980s Lagrein Rosato was almost forgotten while currently it is experiencing a rebirth.

Color: Dark Candy Pink with Hints of Orange.

The following DOCs produce Lagrein Rosato in Trentino-Alto Adige:

Trentino-Alto Adige

Trentino-Alto Adige is located in northern Italy. The capital is Trento.

Alto Adige is also called Südtirol (South Tyrol).

Italian and German are official languages, but the locals also speak Ladin.

Before 1918, Südtirol was part of the Austrian-Hungarian empire, but was annexed to Italy after the first World War.

Early wine production was dominated by Austrian red wines like Lagrein and Vernatch (Schiava).

Today white wines are more important, mostly Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Bianco, and Chardonnay.

Upcoming wines are Savignon Blanc and Pinot Nero.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
