Muri-Gries has a wine-growing tradition that goes back over centuries. Their vineyards in and around Bolzano have been on monastery land for over a century and their monastery winery is completely integrated in the abbey.
The grapes for this classic Lagrein mature in southfacing vineyards in the sun-blessed basin of Bolzano at an altitude of 260 m on vines that are deeply rooted in sandy alluvial soils. Following temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 28°C for 8 days, the wine is aged in 30 - 50 hl wooden barrels.
Winemaking Team Notes: "This Lagrein pours a deep purple color. On the nose, it is invitingly open and multi-layered with notes of violet, chocolate, ripe damsons and spices. On the palate, the wine is elegant with a velvety structure, tightly knit tannins and hints of bitter almonds."
