Lagrein Rosato, Alois Lageder 2021
This rosé is a deep, pink colour with plenty of juicy, morello cherry flavours. Almost a light red, it has a classic Italian bitter twist to the finish.
Stunning paired with lean fish or shellfish. Also a superbly versatile fit cheese, with all mature, hard cheeses but also soft and mild too.
Located in the German-speaking village of Magreid, the Alois Lageder family winery is home to some of the best wines from Alto Adige. Using biodynamic practices since 1994, and officially certified in 2004.
Net Volume: 75cl
Region: Trentino – Alto Adige
If it’s true that”Italian food” is actually the accumulation of distinct regional cuisines, Trentino’s food is the sum of its valleys. Each has its own microclimate and signature products – be it cured fish and meat, cheeses or oils. As you’d expect from its location, the food is a mixture of German and Italian traditions: goulash with cornmeal polenta; sausages served with horseradish and sauerkraut; leberknödelsuppe dumplings made from calves’ liver and herbs.
On the wine front, some of the world’s best Pinot Grigio comes from Alto Adige. You will also find Gewürztraminer and Lagrein grapes alongside the indigenous Marzemino, Nosiola and Teroldego.
