Wine Wednesday: Alois Lageder



Alois Lageder produces some of Alto Adige’s most ravishing wines, and has done so since 1823. You might not think of Pinot Grigio as “ravishing,” but many from Alto Adige are outstanding – in my opinion, some of Italy’s very best.

Flowery aromas and spicy notes accompany Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio 2014 ($15.99), a rich, powerful Pinot Grigio (yes, there is such a thing) with a tinge of smoke. I’d drink it with lightly-smoked fish or poultry dishes and appetizers.

Alois Lageder Chardonnay 2014 ($15.99) has bracing acidity – a food-friendly Chardonnay – with tropical fruit notes. It’s excellent with roasted chicken or just to sip by itself.

Alois Lageder Pinot Bianco 2014 ($14.99) is light, fine and fruity, with peach and apple scents. It’s a versatile wine that pairs well with a range of lighter salads, seafood, and pastas but also works well as an aperitif.
