Wine Advocate 88 points - Big, rich and opulent, the 2012 Alto Adige Lagrein Raut is layered with ripe blackberry and dark fruit, cured meat, tobacco and cherry liqueur. There’s a soft, chewy element to the wine’s texture and the finish is slightly gritty and rustic. This is a good wine to pair with hearty meat dishes like stewed rabbit or garlic-stuffed pork.
