  4. Castel Turmhof Lagrein Alto Adige DOC

TURMHOF Lagrein is named after the estate castle which dates back to the 12th century. The wine is made from 100% Lagrein, grown on choice slopes of the estate vineyards. The wine is fermented in stainless steel, and then aged to perfection in French barriques and large oak casks.

Wine Production

Fermentation on the skins in stainless steel tanks is followed by malolactic fermentation, then the wine ages for another eight months in large wooden casks and small wooden barrels. 

Tasting Notes

Deep garnet in color, this wine is bursting with ripe dark cherry, blackberry and violets aromas with mocha undertones. On the palate, the soft tannins and vibrant acidity make this wine quite versatile.

Food Pairing

Pair with roasted beet, blue cheese and toasted walnut salad or grilled pork chops topped with caramelized apples.
