Wine review: 2012 Alois Lageder Pinot Bianco 'Dolomiti'

Wine review: 2012 Alois Lageder Pinot Bianco 'Dolomiti'
Alois Lageder Pinot Bianco 2012 (Glenn Koenig / Los Angeles Times)
This Pinot Bianco is from South Tyrol's brilliant, almost 200-year-old wine estate Alois Lageder. With the fifth generation in charge now, Lageder produces a consistently excellent range of whites. The Pinot Bianco "Dolomiti," at less than $15, is always a great buy. The grapes are grown on cooler west-facing slopes and farmed bio-dynamically, giving a wine that is crisp and clean, with aromas of apples and delicate flowers.

It's wonderful with mac 'n' cheese, other pasta dishes, pizza bianca, vegetable soups and roasted root vegetables.
