CONUS Lagrein

We have been growing Lagrein grapes in the relatively unknown area of the Magrè talus cone for about ten years now. The dolomitic limestone in the soils is one of the keys to its round and fruity character. The name Conus (Latin for “cone”) is a reference to the Magrè talus cone and its gentle slopes.
