Alois Lageder Cor Romigberg

Alois Lageder Cor Romigberg 2015

Trentino- Alto-Adige, ItalyIn the 1980s Alois Lageder engaged cabernet sauvignon growers around the world before a decision was made to plant cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot on his property. In fact, the grape has 150-year-old tradition in the region. In 1986 the "Herz" (German for heart or Cor in Latin) site was planted to high density vines and farmed using Demeter certified biodynamic methods. Today Romigberg is basking in a combination of global warming, steep southwest facing slopes and mild winds that move up the mountain passes from the Mediterranean. The nose and palate is a combination of aromatic, spicy black cherry / blackcurrant. What may sound like a Napa wine is anything but. It’s the floral notes and the freshness here that make it Euro and the dryness that confirms it’s Italian. This should be cellared through 2020 before its first opened.Tasted: 29 September 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: AB 94.95 private wine shops Producer: Alois LagederDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
