Cantina Terlano Gries Lagrein Riserva 2018


In Stock

“This is a classic expression of Lagrein with all the softness and exuberant fruit weight that you should expect of this grape. The Cantina Terlano 2018 Alto Adige Lagrein Riserva Gries exhibits an inky dark appearance with purple and blackish hues. To the finish, this vintage offers dustings of earth and spice; however, the core of the wine is packed tight with fruity richness. Lagrein is normally not a very age-worthy grape, but this bottle will likely sail through to the 10-year mark. Some 45,000 bottles were made. Drink: 2021-2028. 93 points

This is another set of gorgeous wines from Cantina Terlano. There has been interest from readers in bottle weight, and the top-end wines from this estate continue to be bottled in relatively heavy glass.”
