Tenuta Lageder Krafuss 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Alois Lageder is one of Italy's foremost winemakers. Based in the mountainous Alto Adige region in the far north of the country, the vines (which were converted to biodyanmics in 2004) enjoy a long, sunny growing season with warm days and cool nights that help to preserve both the grapes' natural aromas and acidity. The wines themselves are made in a solar-powered state-of-the-art winery. The house style is all about freshness, elegance and purity of fruit. These are finely chiseled wines with real definition, but immense charm too. Krafuss Pinot Noir displays a medium intense ruby colour with a garnet shimmer. Still somewhat closed, it offers a clean uplifted varietal aroma with impressions of red berry fruit, cherries and oak spice (white pepper, cinnamon). The flavours are quite pronounced, though the wine itself is medium-bodied. The finish is fresh with good length and a presence of spicy tannin. This wine will drink well, when cellared under proper conditions, for at least 4 to 6 years and is best paired with white and red meat, poultry, duck, venison and a variety of cheeses.

Alois Lageder produces four different groups of wines: Classic Wines, Single Vineyard Wines, Biodynamics and Estate Wines. Alois Lageder’s wines are directed to a quality-conscious public and are available only in better restaurants and specialist shops. Classic Wines include wines from the traditionally grown grapes of Alto Adige. Single variety white, rosé and red wines of high quality. Single Vineyard Wines make use of the grapes of selected, individual vineyards, separately vinified. The characteristic features of each particular place and exposure find resonant expression. The ‘beta delta’ wines are made from certified organic grapes from vineyards that are farmed according to biodynamic methods of viticulture (Greek: βios and δinamikòs). Estate Wines are the flagship wines of Alois Lageder. Grapes from exceptional locales and exposures are carefully selected according to rigorous standards. They mature in barriques of French oak into fine, complex wines. Their quantity is limited by nature itself. Read less

This smells woody on the nose with oyster shell, moss, and oak notes sharing the stage with floral and dried cranberry fruit. Big and soft, fleshy even in the mouth with taut, minerally dried strawberry fruit that’s accented with hints of Asian spice and even some super ripe tropical fruit notes. Rosehips on the backend lead to a light, bright, minerally cut finish. A touch austere this might be trying too hard. 88pts
