Rosé wine – Italy
Lagrein Rosato 2014, Alois Lageder, Alto Adige (12.5% abv) Biodynamic
Alois Lageder wineries have been owned and managed by the Lageder family for five generations. Located in the German-speaking village of Magreid in the mountains of Alto Adige, Lageder runs his domaine on a completely sustainable basis. The vines (which have been farmed biodynamically since 2004) enjoy a long, sunny growing season with warm days and cool nights that help to preserve both the grapes’ natural aromas and acidity. Grapes are picked and then immediately pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged in its lees for 4 months before bottling. A deep pink colour with plenty of juicy, morello cherry flavours. Almost a light red, it has a classic Italian bitter twist to the finish.
