The Cantina Tramin Urban Lagrein Riserva Alto Adige is pleasantly dry for wine connoisseurs. This red wine is never coarse or austere, but round and smooth.

Vinification of the Cantina Tramin Urban Lagrein Riserva Alto Adige
This balanced red wine from Italy is made from the Lagrein grape variety. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Trentino-Alto Adige. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into soils of clay, sand and limestone. The grapes for the Urban Lagrein Riserva Alto Adige are harvested exclusively by hand at the time of optimum ripeness, without the help of stressful and barely selective grape harvesters. After manual harvesting, the grapes are transported to the press house as quickly as possible. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. This is followed by fermentation in concrete, small wood and large wood at controlled temperatures. Vinification is followed by maturation on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally bottled. The ageing in barrels is followed by considerable bottle ageing, which makes this red wine even more complex.
