HOT SEPTEMBER FEATURE! LAGARIA PINOT GRIGIO
The Story: The UNESCO World Heritage site describes the Dolomites as “some of the most beautiful mountain landscapes anywhere”. These cool, mineral-rich slopes form several fruitful valleys and are often terraced into apple orchards and vineyards. Lagaria is nestled in one of these valleys – Val Lagarina – and is an ultramodern winery. You know the Lagaria range must be special just by visiting the winery itself. It is so spotless you could eat off its floors and is superbly equipped. It also boasts some of the finest professionals in the region. As you walk through the vineyards taking in the fresh mountain air with the warm soil beneath you cooling down during breezy nights, you realize the crisp aromas of apples, pears and white flowers have nourished every single grape, finding their way into each Lagaria bottle. All of the wines are styled by the brilliant winemaker Franco Bernabei. Starting with the 2013 vintage, they have sported a sizzling new look by one of Italy’s most exciting illustrators, Stefano Riboli.
The Wine: Straw yellow in color, pleasant floral and fruity aromas of apple, apricot and pear. Medium-bodied, with refreshing fruit, distinct character and balance.
