Food Pairings for Tenuta Lageder Krafuss
Editorial Reviews for Tenuta Lageder Krafuss
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
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.
