Alois Lageder is one of the leading lights in Italy. This energetic and flavourful pinot grigio is a fine match for steamed shellfish or creamy lemon pasta.
This is not your average Pinot Grigio from Italy! The Alois Lageder estate was founded almost 200 hundred years ago, and the 6th generation of the Lageder family are making some of the most talked about wines of Italy. Trentino-Alto-Adige is the chilly northern Italian region that this estate calls home, where the land is steep, hilly, and cooled by alpine breezes. The limestone-rich Dolomite Mountains provide the soil backdrop for Lageder wines, and you’ll note a fine, chalky presence in this special pinot grigio. You’ll also find lip-smacking citrus flavours, with crisp green apple, a hint of peach and high, mouthwatering acidity. It’s a complete, dry, elegant wine for sipping with a slight chill. Pair it with steamed Salt Spring Island mussels, with white wine and garlic.
