Estate: The Lechthaler estate is located in Trentino, the far northern region of Italy. The history of the Lechthaler estate is that of the story of two winemaking families, Togn and Lechthaler. Germano Togn began making wine in the 1940’s, his son Luigi followed in his footsteps and began crafting his own wines in 1975. The Lechthaler family had been crafting wines from indigenous grapes in Trentino since 1905. They were one of the first producers in Trentino to sell their wines in bottles rather then the customary barrels at the time. The two families worked together for many years, until the mid 1980’s when Luigi Togn acquired the brand from the Lechthaler family. Today Luigi is still at the helm, along with his daughters Romina, Valentina and Martina.
Winemaking: Aged for 10 months in oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: Dark garnet in colour with aromas of black cherry along with hints of funky earth and spiced oak. Tasting very similar to the aromas, with cherry and plum backed by earth notes and good acidity. Concentrated fruit with spice hints comprise the moderate finish. Rustic and fruity, this is a gluggable companion with pizza and pastas.
