Brilliant straw yellow with a green shimmer. Quite pronounced and expressive aroma with flowery and somewhat spicy notes. Rich flavoured in the mouth, with a slight smokiness at the back and a good, fresh finish. When properly cellared, this will drink well for 2 to 4 years.
Technical notes
The fruit was harvested from various vineyards located in the Trentino appellation. Fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged sur lie for four months.

Producer
Alois Lageder's great grandfather founded the winery over 150 years ago in Alto Adige, Northeast Italy. In 1934, the family acquired the Lowengang estate in Magre and continued adding other prime Alto Adige vineyards. Now in its fifth generation, the company is led by Alois Lageder. His brother-in-law Luis von Dellemann, is the winemaker. Today Lageder owns 185 acres across a variety of microclimates. In the higher elevation Alpine climate, Riesling, Muller-Thurgau and Gewurztraminer grow well. Farther downhill, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Bianco find enough warmth. In the valley floor, where temperatures exceed 90 F. in the summer, reds thrive. There are a variety of soils mostly a mix of limestone and clay, with some volcanic porphyry. Lageder divides production into two brands Alois Lageder and Tenutae Lageder. The wines of the Alois Lageder are made partly from grapes grown in their certified biodynamically farmed estate vineyards and partly from grapes purchased through long-term relationships with respected sustainable growers. Tenutae Lageder wines are made exclusively from grapes grown in the estate vineyards.
