Professional Wine Reviews for Muri Gries Rosso Lagrein 2015

More Info -
Alongside Vernatsch, Lagrein is the only red wine grape native to South Tyrol: the red wine of Gries, a valuable and unique grape variety that clearly stands out from the bland international flavour. Muri-Gries has always believed in Lagrein in the past and will focus on it even more in the future. The main aim of the monastery cellar is today to preserve the Lagrein’s typical characteristics, its down-to-earth taste, its rustic elegance and identity, fostering and developing these both in the vineyard and in the cellar. It is a worthy heritage, one formed of vines that have been adapted for over six centuries to the microclimate, with over one hundred different Lagrein variants. Some 20 varieties have been under observation for years in the monastery’s own vineyards: from these were selected the biotypes for the replanting of the Klosteranger, with the constant aim of further emphasising the special character of the grape variety and continuously improving its quality and typical nature.

Additional Information on Muri Gries Rosso Lagrein 2015

Winery Muri Gries

Region: Trentino/Alto Adige

The Italian wine region of Trentino-Alto Adige is often considered to be Italy's finest and most unique wine region, with centuries of history, and a range of different influences coming from the region's proximity to Germanic countries, as well as places like Lombardy and Venezia. However, it is usually Trentino-Alto Adige's alpine nature which causes wine fans to become the most excited, as the beautiful terroir in the foothills of the Italian Alps produce wines which are packed full of fascinating and unique attributes, due to the crystal mountain waters and plentiful minerals present in the soils of the vineyards. The three native grape varietals of the area are still used in Trentino-Alto Adige's wines, however, it is more common to find excellent imported grapes listed on the region's bottles, as great success has been had with Pinot Gris, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay grapes over the years.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
