Lagrein is an autochthonous grape variety from South Tyrol and is made into an excellent red wine at the Klosterkellerei Muri-Gries. In this article we will take a closer look at the production, soil characteristics and taste of the Lagrein wine of the Klosterkellerei Muri-Gries.

The production of this typical, South Tyrolean red wine begins with the harvest of the grapes. This usually takes place in late September or early October, depending on the weather. After the harvest, the grapes are de-stemmed and placed in stainless steel tanks to ferment. Fermentation lasts about 10 to 14 days, depending on the temperature and ripeness of the grapes. Then the still young red wine is stored in oak barrels to mature. This is where Lagrein develops its characteristic aroma and flavor.

The soil conditions play an important role in the production of Lagrein wine. The vineyards of the Klosterkellerei Muri-Gries are located at an altitude of 230 to 450 meters above sea level. The soil consists of clay and limestone, which gives the wine its mineral notes. The vines grow on steep slopes that allow good drainage and optimal exposure to sunlight. This gives the grapes the necessary ripeness and intense aroma.

The Lagrein wine of the Klosterkellerei Muri-Gries is a full-bodied, intense red wine with a deep ruby red color. On the nose, aromas of blackberries, black cherries and spices unfold. The palate is powerful and balanced with a fruity and spicy flavor. The finish is long and intense with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Lagrein wine is excellent with red meat, game dishes and mature cheeses.

In conclusion, the Lagrein wine of the Klosterkellerei Muri-Gries is an excellent red wine made with passion and expertise. The wine stands out for its characteristic mineral notes, its aromatic diversity and its powerful taste.
