In the mountains of Alto Adige, Michela Carlotto and her father Ferruccio have created a perfect cross between precise northern craftsmanship and suave Italian class. In their hands, the local Lagrein—a notoriously inky, tannic grape—is a thing of purity and finesse.
       Several years ago, after realizing Lagrein’s rustic side could be tamed with a gentle vinification, they began to harvest earlier and shorten macerations with the goal of crafting a powerful, age-worthy wine that would also offer immediate satisfaction. The 2014 illustrates the outcome of their philosophy: this dark, brooding beast has silky-fine tannins providing a delicate platform for its deep mountain berry fruit to shine. A relatively new addition to our portfolio, Carlotto demonstrates the potential for wildly intense, yet elegant reds in Italy’s northernmost grape-growing region. –Anthony Lynch
