Alto Adige DOC

Lagrein Riserva
Sanct Valentin


The indigenous Lagrein grape variety find the best conditions for the production of quality wines in the vineyards around Bolzano. The Sanct Valentin Lagrein, first produced in 2000, is aged for twelve months in small oak barrels, and for a further six months in bigger barrels for improved balance. With a robust character it develops immense power on the palate, with nicely integrated acidity. A vigorous wine with excellent ageing potential.
