Lagrein de Weinfeld

Lagrein de Weinfeld

“Weinfeld”, noble common noun awarded to the de Valentini family by Maria Theresa of Austria through Giovanni Paolo, Jurisdictional Chancellor.

“Weinfeld” as in Vallagarina’s vineyard par excellence, ancient nineteenth century caesura, where we skilfully cultivate our Lagrein.

Highly prestigious red that tantalises even the most refined palates with its complex scents of ripe red fruits and its balance between structure and tannins, which make it one of a kind.

Following an advanced ripening on the vine, resulting in an excellent concentration of polyphenols, it is fermented with its skins in steel barrels and left to macerate for twenty days.

It is subsequently refined in small oak casks for twelve months and then bottled for a further three.
