Winemaker Notes

Medium garnet colour with ruby hints. Rich, quite pronounced, spicy aroma with a chocolate character, floral impressions (violets), red fruit and prunes. Soft, smooth fruit, full-bodied. Masculine style. Firm, dry and somewhat earthy finish. When stored under proper conditions, this wine will drink well for at least 6 to 8 years.

Critical Acclaim

TP 92
Tasting Panel
Polished, dense, and spicy with depth and rich blackberry, this wine makes use of a somewhat obscure Syrah-like variety that deserves your attention.
JS 91
James Suckling
A prototypical, modern lagrein with tons of wild-berry aromas, moderately dry tannins and a fresh acidity. Where is that salami? Drink now.

"We are not winemakers," says Alois Lageder, descendant of a family that has devoted itself to wine for four generations. "We see our role more accurately as midwives and educators. Our duty is to bring our grapes into the world in good health with the greatest possible care, and to encourage the successful development of our wines at all stages."

The Lageder family has been active in the wine trade for more than 150 years. In 1855, Alois Lageder winery was founded the on the edge of Bolzano's historic center. Over the years, through the untiring efforts of four generations, the Lageder family has succeeded in purchasing several vineyards and wine estates in some of Alto Adige's best wine-growing areas.

Today the company is managed by Alois Lageder (born in 1950) and he is actively assisted by his sister Wendelgard, who is responsible for administration and public relations and his brother-in-law Luis von Dellemann, the enologist. "Our strong connection with nature, with the soil and with the local people," adds Alois Lageder, "helps us in this arduous but rewarding work."

Taking full advantage of direct sunlight exposure on its steep slopes, many of Alto Adige’s best vineyards are planted at extreme altitude. It is sheltered by the Alps from cold northerly winds and certain locations experience warm and bright sunshine throughout the growing season, allowing for even ripening of grapes. Dominant red varieties include the bold, herbaceous Lagrein and delicate, fruity Schiava, as well as some impressive, spicy Pinot Noir. The primary white grapes are Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc, as well as smaller plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, Müller Thurgau, and others. Alto Adige whites are typically bright and crisp.

Incredibly concentrated and uncommonly sturdy in character, Lagrein has roots in the Alto Adige area and has recently experienced a great renaissance in popularity. It balances intensity with a gorgeous perfume reminiscent of fresh herbs, cut grass, juniper and violets.
