Alto Adige DOC Lagrein, red wine from Alto Adige in northern Italy (see Alto Adige DOC) made from a minimum 85% Lagrein, one of Alto Adige’s leading red wine varieties with Pinot Noir and Schiava. It can also be made as ‘riserva’. Lagrein is an indigenous variety, typically grown in gravelly valley areas such as the Bolzano basin (and Bassa Atesina), where the soils remain warm for a long time in the autumn (sand, gravel, Bolzano porphyr). On the slopes, cultivation is limited to below 300 metres (1,000 feet) above sea level. See also the ‘Kretzer’ or rosé version.
