100% Lagrein. Nusserhof dubbed its rosato "kretzer" or "basket” for the basket into which grapes are harvested traditionally in the Südtirol. Though it is made by direct press , the color is so dark and deep that it borders on appearing to be a light red wine;  but its tannins are soft and its dark-red fruit flavors are rich but bright with alpine acidity, such that it is an ideal year-round rosé. It is always a late-release wine relative to other more seasonally oriented rosés.
