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. Alto Adige Pinot Noir Barthenau Vigna Sant'Urbano is made from grapes harvested and selected by hand, and stored in small crates to keep the grapes intact. 75% of the grapes are destemmed, another 25 per cent remain intact for barrel fermentation. This process is followed by a day of maceration and then about 10 days of fermentation, with the skins in continuous contact with the must. Maturation in wood takes place in small French oak barrels for the first 12 months. After this, the different barrels are blended into one large oak barrel where the wine ages for an additional 8 months. After bottling, the wine rests in the bottle for 8 months at the Barthenau estate cellars before being marketed. In the glass, this wine is deep ruby red in colour, emanating an elegant bouquet of red forest fruit and sweet spices, followed by a subtle undertone of vanilla. On the palate, this wine is silky, almost caressing, following in the tradition of great Pinot Noirs, characterised by perfectly integrated tannins and an uncommon aromatic concentration of small berry fruits. The perfect bottle for an important occasion, to be paired with red meat or game dishes, as well as a plate of cheeses that are not too overpowering, and that work well with the elegance of the wine.

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.
