This Pinot Grigio is a brilliant straw yellow with green shimmer. There are quite pronounced and expressive aromas of flowers with somewhat spicy notes. There is rich flavor in the mouth, with slight smokiness at the back and a good, fresh finish.
Pairs well with fish or meat starters, pates and terrines, fish and shellfish, poultry, white meat and mushrooms. Made with grapes from select vineyards in the Dolomiti area where the soil is primarily limestone. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks followed by four months on the lees.
From Alois Lageder regarding their farming practices:
"We believe that organic and biodynamic cultivation greatly enriches the landscape. It nurtures the soil and creates a healthier and more diverse environment for flora, fauna, and for us humans. That is why we want to encourage our partners to make the full conversion to organic farming.
"To make this happen, we are drawing on our many years of experience with biodynamic agriculture. Together with our partners we are working on designating Terra Alpina wines as organic in just a few years, and we rely on their trust, advice, and support. The personal conviction of each individual partner is necessary to produce high-quality organic wines and to continuously improve their quality."
