Full, bright ruby, almost black in colour, this is an extremely typical Lagrein, very easily recognisable. It is immediately impressive due to the excellent equilibrium between intensity and complexity, between aromas of spice and small woodland berry fruits and violets. Its fragrance is striking, clear, captivating and fresh. Very harmonious on the palate, with assertive but supple tannins, full, broad, velvety, round with subtle spice on the finish enlivened by palate-lifting acidity.
Vinous 89 points - Another delicious entry-level red, the 2011 Lagrein literally bursts from the glass with a rush of dark red fruit, flowers, licorice, grilled herbs and menthol. The 2011 is both juicy and varietally expressive, a combination that works beautifully here. -- Antonio Galloni (May 2013)
