The brightness and depth of Lagrein complement the floral and fruit driven Dolcetto. Deep ruby in colour, it enjoys all the aromas of a garden in Spring. The soft palate offers blackberry, liquorice and violets and a long savoury finish.
This is the most versatile wine in the Heartland range for food pairing. Asian, Italian, French and any number of other cuisines make a fine accompaniment.
Ageing Potential: 3-5 Years
Big firm dark berries - Lagrein gives a menthol and eucalyptis fragrance to the wine. It is sensational and delicate at the same time. There is lovely underlying ripeness, overlain with spicy dark bramble fruits. An elegant fragrant wine with plenty of power and a long fruity finish.
