Weingut Klaus Lentsch

Italy

Klaus Lentsch is a descendant of a well-established and respected family of growers and enologists in Alto Adige. After receiving his training and upon completion of his studies, Klaus was the cellar master for several years in his uncle’s winery, Alois Lageder. Amongst other programs, Klaus was mainly responsible for Alois Lageder’s iconic red wine Löwengang Cabernet.

In 2008, Klaus decided to leave his uncle’s winery to start his own project with his wife Sylvia. He was able to secure some premium plots around his estate Amperghof. Klaus believes in the benefit of low intervention winemaking in order to best highlight the care and respectful treatment given to the vines in his vineyards. The result can be enjoyed in his single varietal red and white wines, displaying the full range of aromas and complexity of top-quality Alto Adige vineyards.

It serves well as a refreshing aperitif. Good choice with salads, grilled fish, white sauce pasta dishes, risotto, and pork. Delicious for a late winter lunch with chicken pot pie.

Deep purple in the glass, with a nose of sweet dark fruit, blueberries, ripe black plum, and floral with meaty notes and a hint of balsamic. On the palate dark fruit is balanced with acidity, grippy tannins and oak notes. Flavours of plum, dark berries, heirloom tomatoes with a touch of balsamic and pink peppercorns. The wine will benefit from decanting.

Klaus Lentsch Lagrein Riserva Amperg · Pairing

It is a nice wine to relax with during cool evenings in front of a fireplace. It pairs well with charcuterie, especially Tyrolian speck, venison, red meats, and matured cheese. Delicious for a dinner of roast tenderloin of venison with a mixed berry sauce finished with a dusting of pink perppercorn.
