Professional Wine Reviews for Alois Lageder Bianco Forra 2016

Rated 92 by Vinous Media
Golden-tinged straw-green. Aromas of apple, pear and lime are enlivened by ginger and white pepper. Spicy orchard fruit flavors and a hint of licorice are nicely lifted by harmonious acidity. Closes long dense and chewy. A super Manzoni Bianco Forra, the 2016 is made from vines that are about ten years old, planted at 300-320 meters above sea level.
Rated 91 by James Suckling
This rather delicate white is quite developed, showing discreet pear and melon aromas. Clearly bottled with low sulfur content. Long, gentle finish. From biodynamically grown grapes and Demeter certified. Drink or hold.

Winery Alois Lageder

Region: Trentino/Alto Adige

There are few wine regions in Italy which generate quite as much intrigue and excitement amongst wine lovers as that of Trentino-Alto Adige. Situated in the northernmost borders of the country, Trentino-Alto Adige is a wine region quite unlike any other in Italy. With a range of influences from Germany, Lombardy and Venezia, the wines of Trentino-Alto Adige tend to be quite different from those found elsewhere in Italy, and are often considered to be the country's finest produce. The region is an alpine one, and the flavors of the Alps are often detected in Trentino-Alto Adige's finest white wines – all fresh, crystal waters and resiny aromas – whilst the red wines are generally deep and spicy, and perfect for a range of cuisines.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
