2021 Castel Firmian Lagrein

6 bottles

In stock.

The Lagrein is indigenous to the valleys of Trentino. The wines tend to be deeply coloured and have intense berry-fruit flavours. They often feel a touch rustic (especially if not given time to settle prior to release, with or without the help of oak barrels), have a slight taste of iodine, or saltiness. This wine is deep ruby red, and shows attractive blackcurrant and wild raspberry aromas with touches of eucalyptus and liquorice. It’s reasonably full-bodied with well mannered tannins, and has dark chocolate and graphite characters along with light notes of spicy cedar.

Vegan Friendly.

92 pts - Kim Brebach (BWU20)

Trentino Alto Adige is the home of this grape, which people tend to either love or dislike. The colour is impenetrable, the nose offers a riot of smells ranging from cherries and dark berries to leather and dried herbs. The palate continues the story and adds some vanillan oak, fresh acid and ripe tannins. It packs a lot of flavour into a medium-bodied package that really needs a couple more years in a dark place.

91 pts - Ken Gargett (Wine Pilot)

Lagrein is a variety native to northern Italy and best known for producing wines which are both high in acidity and in tannins, but offering appealing plums, darker fruits and earthy tones. Slightly old-fashioned (in a nice way), they can be full, without being clumsy. This example is deep magenta in colour. We have notes of chocolate, soy, bay leaves and cassis, as well as hints of charcuterie and that bitter almond/sour cherry note on the finish of the palate, tying the wine together with saturated flavours, impressive length, fine but noticeable tannins and bright acidity. This is appealing now but should age well for six to eight years and one can expect the ranking to go higher over that time.
