Alois Lageder Krafuss Pinot Noir

Alois Lageder Krafuss Pinot Noir 2015

Trentino- Alto-Adige, ItalyThe Lageder pinot style is more Burgundian, if we can use that term, in the sense that elegance is the goal, not power. The Krafuss is released under the Masterpiece series taking its name from grandfather Lageder’s vineyard. The loam over gravel soils with calcareous glacial deposits sit on a gentle hilltop at 430 t0 450 metres above sea level. The 24-year-old vines are farmed and certified biodynamic. The goal, and the reality, is an aromatic, vibrant, layered, complex pinot that is predominately red fruited with spicy, mineral, salty notes throughout the finish. Mouth filling attractive style that you can drink now or hold through 2023. The ageing takes place in a mix of cask sizes 225, 300 and 500 liters.Tasted: 29 September 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: ON 67.00 LCBO Producer: Alois LagederDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
