Pranzegg 2020 Vino Bianco Tonsur

A beautiful hazy lemon in the glass. Savory oyster shell, intensely herbal and floral, with lemon pith and firm pear on the nose. Aromatically, it really opens up after a few hours, showing wonderfully floral citrus and lemon grass. The palate has bite - with a strong saline core, lemon zest, and snappy yellow apple. Like the nose, the flavors loosen up with time, with lovely soft stone fruit. Finishes with a light smokiness. High acid adds to the wine's edge, with a hint of tannin to help balance. A real tasty journey with this wine! David Hatzopoulos

Pranzegg 2016 Mitterberg Lagrein Laurenc

100% Lagrein. Rich and plummy in color. Liqour-like cherry on the nose, with heady birch, black pepper, and raw almonds. Raspberry and cherry on the palate - mineral drive and salty, mineral center. A great wine, with high acidity and grippy, engaging tannin. An incredible expression of this very Alpine grape! David Hatzopoulos

Pranzegg 2017 Mitterberg Lagrein Laurenc

100% Lagrein from Alto-Adige. A barely translucent purple in the glass. The nose is dark and brooding, with mellow tones of black plum, blackberry, fennel sead, and garden soil. Becomes floral with time, and then a little ripe peach apepars. The palate has great nervy fruit, with lapping flavors of black cherry and gravelly minerality. Structure washes over the tongue, with lush tannin and bright acidity. New to Lagrein? Definitely start here. David Hatzopoulos

Pranzegg 2017 Mitterberg Schiava / Vernatsch Campill

Light red cherry color. Nose is ripe and fruit foward, with raspberry, black cherry, and a fresh herbal aroma. A clean smell of orange peel appears after a moment open. On the palate, firm flavors of red berries and dark stones hit the tongue. The finish is enhanced by a spark of salinity. A mineral tingle brightens a structure of semi-chewy tannin and high acid. Great mouthfeel, wonderful length, and full of flavor! David Hatzopoulos

Pranzegg 2020 Rosso Frizzante Miau!

Biodynamically farmed Schiava from one of our favorite estates in Alto Adige. Great color - clear but juicy ruby. The nose is full of fruit with crisp red apple, white  flowers, snappy green stems, and pine needles. Flavors of red citrus, apple skin, crushed dark minerals, watermelon rind, and tangy cherry. Great blanket of firm bubbles excite the tongue and there is a tannic touch on the gums. High acid carries the wine's clean fruit. Sunday afternoon drinking? Here's a perfect choice!

Pranzegg 2020 Vino Rosso Leggero

The Vino Rosso Leggero is made from mostly Schiava with a little bit of Lagrein (and a dash of other red grapes). Color is a bright red cherry. On the nose smells of fresh cranberries and raspberries. A lovely softness rounds out the wines aromatic display, with violets and swaths of green grass. The palate is zesty, with plum skin, tart red berries, pomegranate seeds, and a dark, stony minerality. On the finish, a hint of savory spice falls on the tongue. High acid, hint of tannin - give this wine a chill and be rewarded. Drink one of these and you'll be back for more! David Hatzopoulos
