2022 Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio
The Pinot Grigio grape variety, also called Grauburgunder or Pinot Gris, is currently the most widely grown white wine variety in Alto Adige. The places subject to Mediterranean influences around Magrè and Salorno have predominantly calcareous soils with a high sand and gravel content and are perfect for cultivating this grape variety of the noble Pinot family.
This Pinot Grigio is produced by the Italian winery Alois Lageder located in the Trentino wine region. The winery in Alto Adige has approximately 50 hectares of its own vineyards, which are managed based on biodynamic principles. The holistic approach of this winery is reflected in its viticultural activities, its long-standing relationships with numerous grape growers and its ambition to create awareness for agriculture in tune with nature. "We are not winemakers," says Alois Lageder, descendant of a family that has been passionately involved with wine for 4 generations. 'We see our role more as that of midwife, coach and teacher. Our task is to guide the grapes in good health and with the utmost care and to encourage the successful development of our wines in all respects.
The Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio is bright straw yellow in color with a light golden sheen. On the nose there are powerful, lively and pronounced aromas of flowers, exotic herbs, fruit (peach, melon) and minerals. The wine has a full, rich taste. Fruity, spicy, fresh, slightly smoky. Medium bodied. Vinification: fermentation in stainless steel barrels, aged for 4 months on its own fine sediment.
Beautiful wine with starters with (white) meat or fish and delicious with dishes with crustaceans and shellfish, sea fish, pates and terrines, poultry, white meat and mushrooms.
