Castell Sallegg has been in the same noble family's possession since 1852, currently owned by the Count von Kuenburg. Its dramatic situation in the southern Tyrolean Alps is a truly majestic home for vineyards, as demonstrated by more than 1,000 years of winemmaking at this historic site. A full range of aromatic whites and ripe reds is produced here, exploiting a host of native and more-or-less-native-at-this point varieties. Here we have the true native lagrein, made in a fresh, crunchy style to exhibit the grape's garnet red fruit and subtle balsamic bitterness. It does very well with braised or roasted meats.
