Terlan Lagrein Gries 2019
|Italy, Trentino-Alto Adige, Alto Adige
Dark and inward, the 2019 Lagrein Riserva Gries grumbles up from the glass with nuances of mint, dried cherries and ashen stone. Its textures are soft, almost fleshy in feel, with rich black fruits and balsamic spice. The 2019 finishes structured, but also a bit short, with a bitter touch of cocoa. This monolithic rendition of Terlano's Gries is a bit perplexing. It certainly requires cellaring, yet it lacks dimension in general.
