Kupelwieser, Lagrein 2015, Alto Adige, Italy
Tasting Note: A wine with red and black fruit and a velvety soft mouthfeel that would pair well with many a meal and hails from the Alto Adige region of Italy.
Medium-intensity purple in color this wine has an aromatic nose of black plum, red currant, raspberry and bramble.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied wine expresses flavors suggested on the nose along with velvety, ripe, medium tannin supported by medium-plus acidity.
The wine also has some midpalate complexity that is enjoyable.
