Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio 2002
Suggested Food: Starters (both fish or meat), patés and terrines, fish and shellfish, poultry, white meat and mushrooms.
"It's rare to find Pinot Grigio with this much delicacy to its varietal expression. This Lageder is spicy and tight, with lively grape skin flavors coming off the lees on which it is aged. Toasty and firm, the crisp, fresh finish will match polpo en brodo."

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."
