Producer
With fifty hectares of vineyards, Tenuta J. Hofstätter is one of the largest private wine estates in Alto Adige, and yet manages to live up to its reputation for absolutely pristine quality. It is meticulously run by fourth generation Martin Foradori Hofstätter, whose ancestor Joseph founded the estate in 1907. The pinnacle of the range is the single-vineyard Vigna S. Urbano Pinot Nero, planted in the 1950s by Martin’s father. His neighbours thought he was mad at the time; this is now one of the finest expressions of Pinot Noir not just in Alto Adige, but in the whole of Europe.

Vineyard
The grapes are grown around the Barthenau estate at 450 metres above sea level. The vineyard is located on a gentle slope where both exposure to sunlight and air circulation are ideal, resulting in perfectly ripe and healthy grapes. The soil is a mixture of clay, lime, eroded porphyry and fine gravel. The grapes were hand-harvested on the 20th of September.

Winery
The grapes were given a few hours’ skin contact and then pressed. Following settling, the juice was racked to large (5-30 hectolitre) oak casks where it fermented at 19oC and aged for a year, with weekly lees stirring. It was bottled without fining.

Taste
An extremely elegant wine with impressive structure and a full, complex bouquet, well balanced on the palate with excellent mouthfeel and fruit underpinned by firm, mouth-watering acidity.
