Lagrein is not an easy grape to vinify: naturally high in acidity and densely packed with grippy tannins, it has a tendency to exhibit a rustic personality that can leave the palate in tatters. Michela Carlotto realized years ago that winemaking adjustments would be crucial to bringing out a more elegant side to this Alto Adige specialty, so she lightened her treatment of the wine in the cellar, seeking to minimize extraction of harsh tannins for a more suave and aromatic expression of the grape. The result is this inky red, precise yet velvety, that offers a rich mouthful of black fruits—a sophisticated beast. –Anthony Lynch
