There are two important wine regions in Tyrol: Alto Adige and Trentino. They are often mentioned in the same breath, but the differences between the two are significant. The wine production in Alto Adige takes place on the slopes of the mountains, with vineyards at an altitude of 1000 meters. In Trentino, the vineyards are more in the plains and lower. The elegance of Alto Adige and the enormous aging potential make the wines from the high-altitude region unique.
The De Alois Lageder Casòn Hirschprunn comes from the Alto Adige and is a blend of Petit Mensang, Roussanne, Marsanne, Chenin Blanc and is the top model of Alois Lageder. The Casòn Hirschprunn (or simply Casòn Bianco) is bright straw yellow in color. In the nose aromas of grapefruit, very ripe peach, mandarin, spices, fresh toast and roasted nuts. In the taste palette notes of lime, orange peel, dried apricots, spices and vanilla, which are accompanied by an intense, long aftertaste with fresh acids.
The grapes are harvested manually, with strict selection. In the vinification room, the grapes are immediately pressed pneumatically and the juice is allowed to rest for about 12 hours, so that the coarser components can settle. The juice is then allowed to undergo temperature-controlled (18°C) alcoholic fermentation with natural (grape-specific) yeasts on French oak barriques. In the same barriques, the young wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and maturation on the 'lie'. After about 11 months, the wine is assembled and it is briefly matured in large oak casks, after which the wine is bottled unfiltered. This entire process follows strict biodynamic rules and regulations.
ABOUT ALOIS LAGEDER
Alois Lageder is the largest and therefore the most influential biodynamic wine producer in Italy. The company officially dates back to 1823 when it started as a wine merchant in Bolzano. It really became a winery when Alois Lageder III bought the Löwengang domain in Magrè, in the south of Alto Adige, in 1934.
Lageder recognizes the potential and diversity of the mountainous region, where the altitude, the location and the different soil structures offer an unprecedented number of microclimates and terroirs for an extensive palette of grapes: in white pinot grigio, pinot bianco, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, gewürztraminer and müller- thurgau. In red pinot noir, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, lagrein and schiava.
