2016 Alois Lageder Alto Adige Pinot Noir

2016 Alois Lageder Alto Adige Pinot Noir

'This is quite an earthy and mellow Italian pinot noir that could be mistaken for a burgundy from a softer vintage. Nice balance and fair length.'

DESCRIPTION
  • Alto Adige is one of the few wine-growing areas of Italy with optimum conditions for this grape variety, which is why it is today one of the main local red wines. Pinot Noir prefers cool, well ventilated sites and calcareous gravel soils with a high loam content. This Pinot Noir comes from selected sites in Appiano, Pochi and Cortaccia and, more than any other wine, offers a convincing combination of finesse and body.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Maceration in stainless steel tanks, with maturation in a combination of concrete vessels and oak casks for 12 months.

    Ruby-red with a garnet shimmer. The nose is bright with red cherry/berry characters, spice and mineral notes. Medium-bodied on the palate, with a spicy and soft finish.

    Region: Trentino - Alto Adige
    Winemaker: Jo Pfisterer
    Alcohol Content: 12.5
    Closure: Cork
