93 points James Suckling: "Fabulously dense and flavorful. Aromas of sliced green pears and lemons follow through to a full body with a rich and tangy aftertaste. I like the lemon grass and herb undertones. Flinty too. A blend of pinot blanc, chardonnay and sauvignon banc. Drink now." (7/2014) Wine Enthusiast: "A blend of 60% Pinot Bianco, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Sauvignon, this reveals a fragrance of white flowers and tree fruit. The juicy palate delivers white peach, yellow apple and a mineral note alongside fresh acidity." (6/2014)
This comes from a small suburb of Bolzano called Gries, where the alluvial soils are perfectly suited to Lagrein--a native grape that has been grown in the region since at least 1379. The fruit is manually harvested, slowly fermented in stainless and finished in mostly large wooden barrels (70%) and barriques (one-third new). Always a favorite, this cool climate red is ink-dark and packed with lifted dark berry fruit, fine tannins and exotic spice. It's particularly delicious with game, offal and aged cheeses.
97 points James Suckling: "Glass-staining, with plum, hints of anise, red flowers, gravel and dark olive. Layered, complex and hard to resist. Full-bodied. Perfectly integrated, melted tannins. A real triumph. Greatest Lagrein out there. Drink now." (10/2014) K&L Notes: #10 James Suckling's Top 100 Italian Wines of 2014; November 11th, 2014. Named for the bedrock on which the vineyards stand, this Prophyr bottling is 100% Lagrein selected from three different parcels of vineyard which are all nearly 100 years old. The grapes were manually harvested and again hand-sorted before being slowly fe... Read More »
The 2012 Abtei Muri Sudtirol "Weiss" is a blend of 70% Pinot Bianco and 30% Pinot Grigio grown in the village of Appiano/Eppan in a southeast facing vineyard with predominantly gravelly limestone soils at elevations from 1500 to over 2000 feet, with vines aged 20-30 years. The wines from this area exhibit a persistent saltiness to go along with the excellent acidic balance. Winemaker Christian Werth ferments in stainless steel and then ages it for 15 months in large wooden casks with a weekly lees stirring. This wine can age easily for another 5-8 year... Read More »
Lauded as a reference point for the wines of Trentino-Alto Adige, Cantina/Kellerei Terlan makes this fresh rose, ready-to-enjoy now, from the red Lagrein grape. Winemaker Rudi Kofler notes: "Lagrein is a distinctive indigenous wine. It can be enjoyed as a full-bodied red but also, in the warmer months of the year, as a fruity rosé. Thanks to its fresh and uncomplicated character, the rosé is becoming increasingly popular among wine connoisseurs."

Muri-Gries Blauburgunder, a.k.a. Pinot Nero, a.k.a. Pinot Noir that looks like Dorothy's ruby slippers shimmering in the glass. It's as enchanting as those special shoes, too, with its crunchy, red-fruited bouquet, herbaceous-earthy palate, and punchy acidic backbone. The Muri-Gries vineyards are on an ideal southeast-facing slope where the soils are calcareous, ideal for racy Pinot Noir. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and then put into large Slavonian oak casks of 30hl to 50hl--you could fit the juice from 13 of California’s standard wine barr... Read More »
From a "mischievous" vintage, according to Erste e Neue, a first-rate producer in the Mediterranean alpine region of Trentino-Alto Adige. The winery's vintage note: "he young wines are distinguished by their considerable clear fruit; their fresher, livelier and their fine, elegant structure...Greenish to straw yellow. Soft bouquet with hints of nuts and muscat. Very fresh wine, mild acidity and a pleasant fruitiness. An excellent wine for oysters and other fish dishes." Acidity is 5 grams/liter, with a touch of residual sugar, 3.8 grams/liter.

Can't Ship Due To Size Of The Bottle! Aged 13 years in oak barrique from the 1995 vintage. The marc is a blend of a variety of grapes from the region. The aromas are of toasted oak, vanilla bean, coffee and chocolate. A lovely aged grappa!
Barrel aged for 10 years. This is Italy's answer to Cognac. Made with wine distillate rather than grape pomace. Smoother and more sensual than the wildly popular and rare Poli Barrique Aged Grappa. For Grappa and Brandy lovers alike. The beautiful bottle will wow you, but the juice inside will have you shedding tears of joy.
