Alois Lageder ‘Cor Romigber’ Alto Adige 1996

Cabernet Sauvignon 100%

Description

Stimulated by frequent exchanges with winemakers worldwide, including the legendary Robert Mondavi, an American viticulture pioneer, and several Château owners in Bordeaux, in the 1980s, Alois Lageder decided to introduce Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot vines to this plot, originally cultivated with Schiava. It was here, in 1986, that the first extensive Guyot-trained vineyard in Alto Adige was established, generating considerable discussion. This particular plot, locally referred to as “Herz” (meaning “heart” in Italian and “cor” in Latin), lends its name to the wine produced there. The vineyards contributing to this refined blend consist of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot varieties. The farming method follows controlled organic and biodynamic agriculture with “Demeter” international certification. The production area is the “Maso Römigberg,” situated northwest of Lake Caldaro. The vineyards grow on steep south to southeast-facing slopes, ranging from 250 to 330 meters above sea level. The stony soil with a notable sand presence is of calcareous and clayey origin, ensuring excellent mineral content in the grapes. The vine age ranges from 22 to a maximum of 28 years. Harvesting occurs at the beginning of October, and immediately after, the grapes undergo spontaneous maceration and fermentation of the must. Subsequently, the wine matures, allowing for malolactic fermentation in steel tanks, followed by further refinement in small wooden barrels of 150 and 225 liters for at least 18 months.
