Vineyards: The grapes for this Lagrein come from vineyards planted in the areas of Enga and Ora, some of which are sites that have been planted for more than 100 years. Characterized by the presence of warm soils, moderated by cool nights, this microclimate ensures excellent balance between ripeness and brisk acidity.
Subzone: Villa / Egna, Ora
Winemaking: After gentle pressing, the must is fermented at controlled temperatures in oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation occurs in small French barriques and the wine is then racked to larger oak barrels for further aging. Bottled after 14 months, Urban Lagrein is stored in bottles for another year prior to commercial release.
Tasting Notes: Urban is our best Lagrein, a wine characterized by its dark purple hue and an intense bouquet of wild berries. Full-bodied and robust on the palate, this is a strongly structured wine.
Food Pairing: This Lagrein pairs well with game, strong cheeses, stews or wood-fired pizza.
