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

Trentino-Alto Adige in northern Italy is a beautiful and fascinating wine region, with centuries of viticultural history creating a unique identity and set of flavours and aromas associated with it. Due to its closeness to the Italian borders, there are plenty of international influences found in the wines of Trentino-Alto Adige, most notably coming from the nearby Germanic countries on the other side of the Alps. The Alps play a huge role in the wine culture of the region, as the foothills provide exquisite mountain waters, as well as plenty of interesting soil types on which to grow the vines, resulting in wines full of mountain flavors, alpine aromas and a truly unique character. Wineries in the region love to use the few native grape varietals for their wines, as these are excellent for expressing the unique terroir of Trentino-Alto Adige, however, it is now more common to find better known international varietals listed on bottles, which have helped the world wake up to the wonderful wines of this special region.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
