How to say it

Alois Lagaydah Rayn Reezling

Product guide note

This is a deliciously dry, light and crisp wine which has lots of bright, citrus fruit flavours and aromas. There are also some floral aromas and a minerally, clean character. You don’t see much Riesling from Italy but the climate of the Alto Adige region makes it a great place to grow the grape.

Production information

Producer: Alois Lageder

Located in the German-speaking village of Magreid in the mountains of Alto Adige, Lageder runs his domaine on a completely sustainable basis. The vines (which have been farmed biodynamically since 2004) enjoy a long, sunny growing season with warm days and cool nights that help to preserve both the grapes' natural aromas and acidity.
