Food Pairings for Alois Lageder Pinot Nero Krafuss Italy
Alois Lageder's great grandfather founded the winery over 150 years ago in Alto Adige,Northeast Italy. In 1934, the family acquired the Lowengang estate in Magre and continuedadding other prime Alto Adige vineyards. Now in its fifth generation, the company is led by AloisLageder. His brother-in-law Luis von Dellemann, is the winemaker. Today Lageder owns 185acres across a variety of microclimates. In the higher elevation Alpine climate, Riesling, Muller-Thurgau and Gewurztraminer grow well. Farther downhill, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and PinotBianco find enough warmth. In the valley floor, where temperatures exceed 90 F. in thesummer, reds thrive. There are a variety of soils mostly a mix of limestone and clay, with somevolcanic porphyry. Lageder divides production into two brands Alois Lageder and TenutaeLageder. The wines of the Alois Lageder are made partly from grapes grown in their sustainablyfarmed estate vineyards and partly from grapes purchased through long-term relationships withrespected sustainable growers. Tenutae Lageder wines are made from certified biodynamicestate vineyards or from vineyards working towards certification.
