      All about lagrein

      Lagrein wine in the making

      This red wine hails from northeastern Italy near the Austrian border. The heart of the wine are lagrein grapes, one of the oldest grape varieties grown in the sunny vineyards of this region. They yield a full-bodied wine with dark purple or ruby color and intense flavors of plum and wild cherry. Aging in casks of traditional or French oak lends to the wine's bold flavors. Savor these wines immediately or store in the wine cellar for up to a decade.

      Fruity, earthy flavors and aromas

      Deliciously earthy with bold notes of raspberry and red cherry, this Italian red wine offers an excellent alternative to popular varieties of full-bodied red wines such as cabernet sauvignon. The wine tastes fresh on the palate, has good acidity, mild astringency and a subtle minerally finish. Winemakers often leave it to mature in large oak barrels to impart notes of mocha and caramel. This wine ages beautifully in the cellar for several years to obtain richer flavor but tastes best when enjoyed young and fresh. With its intense and complex bouquet of aromas, this garnet-toned drink adds variety to your red wine collection.

      Sip with hearty dishes

      A red wine that has a bold fruity flavor and high acidity is a fantastic food pairing option. It goes well with cheeses like blue cheese and with hearty meat dishes such as grilled pork chops served with caramelized apples. The wine's bracing acidity slices through the richness of the meat, while sweet notes of caramelized apples complement the drink's fruity notes. Rustic dishes like roast beef with baked potatoes and fennel accent the wine's earthy profile as well.
