Cabernet RISERVA DOC ALOIS LAGEDER
Warm climate and soils rich of limestone and pebbles. These are the main feature of the area of Magrè, where the wines produced with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon express all their structure. This product has always been praised by the winery. Its Riserva version pass at least two years of aging before the launch on the market. It is a blend of Cabernet sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The provenience is the classic one: the areas around Magrè and Cortaccia, where the elevation of the vineyards reaches 240-350 meters and the lands are full of pebbles and limestone. The vineyards are between 17-57 years old and the harvest is planned from 3 to 9 October, in any case, in the first decade of the month, to allow the correct maturation of the grapes. The wine making require a fermentation with maceration of marc in steel and a consequent aging with malolactic fermentation in wooden barrels and in steel.
