Alois Lageder Terra Alpina Pinot Bianco 2020
|Region||Italy, Trentino-Alto Adige, Vigneti delle Dolomiti|
The wines from Alois Lageder's Terra Alpina project are part of the winery's collaboration with growers in neighboring communities to produce excellent wines representative of the Dolomite region. In the foothills of the Dolomite Range, cool Alpine and warm Mediterranean influences meet to create fresh, precise, and expressive wines with a character influenced by the prevalent Dolomitic limestone.
Crushed rocks and smoke give way to pretty florals and hints of freshly sliced pear as the 2020 Pinot Bianco opens in the glass. It's pliant with medium-bodied weight, which is nicely contrasted by notes of sour citrus and tart orchard fruits. Hints of candied lime and raw almond linger though the mouthwatering and perfumed finale.
