Vallagarlna IGP is a key IGP title and was introduced in 1995 to be used in Trentino-Alto Adige, northern Italy, on the borders of Austria and Swlterland, an area best known for the beauty of its peaks. It covers the Vallagarina district in southern Trentlno, named after the Lagarina Valley which marks the lower sections of the Adige river's journey through the limestone Alps.
Positioned right below Austria at the top of Italy, Alto Adige lies in a 'Y' shaped glacial valley, which used to be the main passage between Italy and the rest of Europe. Because of its position as a gateway to Italy, Alto Adige was the focal point of conflict from ancient Roman times through to the second world war. It became part of Italy in 1919 and there are up to three official languages: Italian, German and the Latin language of inhabitants of the Dolomites.
Cabernet Sauvlgnon, Merlot Marzemo and Foja Tonda grape varieties have been expertly blended by the winemaker to produce this delicious wine, commonly regarded as a link between the Chevalier de Bayard and Bor Forras, soft in tannins and full of fruit. The aromas of summer fruits followed by tastes of ripe berries which flourish on the palate make this an ideal wine for summer drinking or as an accompaniment to roast lamb or blue cheese.
