Elena Walch 2021 Lagrein is a medium-bodied, vibrant and elegant red produced in the Südtirol-Alto Adige wine region. Fresh with ripe dark berry, fresh mushroom, savoury herb and earthy aromas, vibrant on the palate with dark berry, black olive, cocoa, dark spices and grippy tannins. Decant one hour prior to pouring with a Porchetta roast. Founded in 1869, this family-owned winery is one of oldest estates in Alto Adige. The Lagrein grape, native to this region, dates back to the 16th century.

Lagrein food pairings: pork schnitzels, veal cutlets, lamb kebabs, roasted root vegetable casserole.
