Lagrein Riserva South tyrol Alto Adige

A.A. Lagrein Riserva "Segen"

The name “Segen”, or Blessing, tells you everything you need to know. Along the Tappeinerweg trail, above the roofs of the spa town of Merano, the Segenbühel, with its majestic steep slopes, rises up - simultaneously the warmest and driest spot in Merano. This spot is a real blessing for wine lovers, since the soils, which are cultivated by hand, possess a unique ability to store heat. The soils are able to radiate the heat absorbed during the day throughout the night and thus produce the ideal ripening conditions. The slow growth of the vines plays its part in delivering impressive quality. Striking, complex and fruity, this indigenous grape vine comes into its own in an elegant and powerful Riserva that is typical of the variety.
