Cantina Terlano Porphyr Lagrein Riserva 2014

Cantina Terlano Porphyr Lagrein Riserva 2014

Availability: Out of stock


"Aged in new and neural oak for 18 months, the 2014 Alto Adige Lagrein Riserva Porphyr is a dense and darkly saturated wine that sits heavy on the senses. The wine is brooding and black in appearance. Oak-driven notes of spice and toast are more pronounced in this vintage because the quality of the fruit below is slightly more streamlined and compact. This is a common issue found in many of the other red wines produced in this challenging vintage. Blackberry and prune is backed by cinnamon and toasted almond. There is a slight touch of bitterness on the close. Some 22,000 bottles were produced. Drink: 2017-2024. 89 points

The shining star of my Alto Adige tasting this year is the 1991 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Rarity. Rarity is indeed a rarity, and I can say this is one of the most exciting Italian white wines I have ever had the privilege to taste. Congratulations to Cantina Terlano in this epic achievement."
