TASTING NOTES

Hofstatter is a historic Alto Adige winery, which operates using techniques that combine tradition with an ongoing quest for innovation. Given the exceptional quality of the wines it produces, this aim is easily achieved every year and gives a voice to this terroir’s authentic personality. The winery is headed up by Martin Foradori, heir to an ancient family of winemakers, who, thanks to careful and environmentally-friendly growing methods, creates red and white wines of enormous expressive power, offering balance and elegance. Pinot Bianco Vigna San Michele is a cru produced exclusively using grapes from the vineyard of the same name at 450 metres above sea level, located on the estate that once belonged to Ludwig Von Barthenau. Short maceration on the skins with natural precipitation of the sediment. Malolactic fermentation and subsequent ageing for 15 months are carried out in large barrels, in a 3,000 litre cask on fine lees. Finally, the wine enjoys an additional 6 months of stabilisation in bottles. This is a white wine with structure and personality, offering lively, intense and layered aromas on the nose, initially split between fruity and floral, but then directed towards softer hints of honey and sweet spices. Full and elegant on the palate, enveloping and persistent in the mouth, with a pleasant acidic streak that remains steadfast, supporting and amplifying the typical elegance of the grape variety. Thanks to its elegance and richness on the nose and palate, this wine is the perfect start to an evening, as an aperitif among friends. Also goes well with more complex fish dishes, or with white meats and poultry, but the ideal pairing is medium-aged cheeses. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Hofstatter

The Hofstatter Winery is a historical symbol of Alto Adige, guarded by the imposing walls of a 16th century building in the province of Bolzano. The Hofstatter vineyards stretch across the eastern and western sides of the Etschtal, finding a home on soils with different characteristics and microclimates. It was precisely because of this peculiarity that in 1987, for the first time in this region, they were able to introduce the designation “Vigna” for seven of their wines. Heir to an ancient family of winegrowers, Martin Foradori continues to pursue Hofstatter's core objective to this day: to harmonise the centuries-old, unique tradition of their land with an eye for innovation. In fact, the immense heritage of the Hofstatter estate has not precluded the use of modern technology to create a state-of-the-art winery, where new, low-energy concrete barrels are housed. The exceptional finesse of Hofstatter wines confirms that this goal is achieved year after year, yielding sublime examples of both whites, such as the renowned Gewürztraminer, and reds, such as Pinot Noir, that are recognised even beyond Italian borders. Name and address of producer/distributor: Hofstatter - Rathausplatz 7 - 39040 Tramin BZ. Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
