Colterenzio Lagrein "Classic"

Colterenzio Lagrein “Classic”


  • Lagrein is a character packed native variety of Alto Adige, and this is Colterenzio’s “go to” wine in the US sommelier scene.

Varietal Composition: 100% Lagrein

Elaboration: Fermentation takes place with the skins in stainless-steel tanks at controlled temperature for 8 days, followed by malolactic fermentation and a few months refinement in a combination of concrete tanks and large wooden casks. Yields: 70hl/ha

Tasting Notes:  Very dark garnet in colour with violet reflexes, and an aroma of violets, black woodland berry fruits (bilberry and blackberry) with hints of dark chocolate; mouth-filling and spicy on the palate with ripe, velvety tannins and a long long finish. Complex and refined with hints of violets, cinnamon and red berry fruits.




Colterenzio is one of the newest wineries in South Tyrol, composed of over 300 families working together.  This is a new-generation cooperative that smashes preconceptions, proving that a humble “coop” can consistently deliver some of the most transparent, expressive wines in the top flight region of Alto Adige.

Member-winegrowers farm their grapes on a total of 300 hectares; the vineyards are located in one of the best wine growing sub-districts of Alto Adige, on altitudes ranging from 230 to 650 meters with 12 different varieties cultivated.  Ecology is a driving principle here – Farming is sustainable and the winery was built with permaculture in mind.
