Here’s a tasty white wine for the first day of Spring. Made all in stainless steel for a feeling of freshness and immediacy, the Alois Lagerder Pinot Bianco 2014, Dolomiti — the Dolomite pinot_bianco_labelmountain ranges in northeastern Italy, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009 — where vineyards in the upper foothills are carved from rocky terraces. The winery was founded in 1823 and now includes the sixth generation of the same family. The color is very pale straw-gold; delicate aromas of green apples and pears, almond skin and orange blossom, hay and heather segue seamlessly into a lovely, light, lithe wine that insinuates itself on the palate with notes of roasted lemon and spiced pear, a hint of thyme and mountain meadow herbs and a high wild peal of grapefruit and limestone. Gosh, what could be more spare, elegant or appealing? 12.5 percent alcohol. A splendid aperitif, or try with seafood risotto, grilled trout with capers and brown butter, fritto misto. Very Good+. About $14, representing Great Value.
