Alois Lageder Pinot Noir
Here's something you don’t see everyday - a pinot noir from Italy! However, the winery has been around for over 150-years, so they should know what they are doing. It's a very medium-bodied, red fruited wine, that also shows some foresty, earthy notes, and a hint of rose florals. The palate is elegant and graceful, with strawberry and raspberry flavours tip-toeing over the tongue, fine-grained tannins, bright acidity, and a decent, slinky finish. Quite lovely, and would be the bomb with duck liver pate.
Medium ruby colour with a garnet shimmer. Clean, uplifted somewhat earthy varietal aroma: notes of red fruit, cherries and some spiciness. Fruity, mild flavour, medium-bodied. Fresh finish with good length. Elegant style. This wine will drink well, when cellared under proper conditions, for at least 3 to 5 years.
Food: White and red meat, poultry, duck, venison, cheeses.
Alcohol: 12.5 %
