MOSBY La Seduzione

MOSBY La Seduzione Wine Details
Price: $26.00 per bottle

Description: The 2002 Mosby La Seduzione is Bill's third release of this rare Cal-Italian varietal. The Lagrein grape is named after the Lagarina Valley of Trentino, although it is now primarily grown at Gries on the outskirts of Bolzano. An extremely rare grape in the United States, we know of only a handful of vineyards in California. Bill was able to procure these grapes from the French Camp Vineyard. This velvety violet colored wine offers aromas of dark plums, cocoa and wild wood mint. The rich mouth feel and flavor of ripe black currants finish with soft tannins.

Varietal Definition
Lagrein:
A famous varietal in the Trentino/Alto Adige area of northern Italy. Usually overproduced into making light reds with little character, there are versions that are worthy of the proper care they were given. Sumptuous, rich reds and perfumed ros├ęs from Lagrein can be very good and will also improve with cellaring, sometimes lasting up to ten years. Black plums, fresh red cherries and alpine grass can be found in the better versions. Also grown with limited success in Australia.
