What an enticing bouquet with blueberries, balsamic, dried bay leaf and Thai basil. Medium-to full-bodied and quite edgy with tangy acidity and a streak of fresh blue fruit. Drink now.
The 2015 Alto Adige Lagrein Riserva Porphyr opens to an inky dark color with blackish hues at the rim. The wine's appearance is impenetrable and extra thick. The bouquet is built upon thick layers of dried blackberry, prune, dark plum and dried cherry. Lagrein does not offer tight tannins, yet this wine delivers firm structure nonetheless. Smoke, moist chewing tobacco and dried herb appear on the close. Grapes are harvested by hand, and the wine ends up in oak for 18 months, split between first, second and third year barrels. (ML)
