A superb Pinot Noir, whose concentration is clearly heralded by its dark ruby color. Initially it seems somewhat closed on the nose, but then opens up in the glass to reveal its authentic, noble Pinot Noir origins. The aroma reminiscent of sour cherry and raspberry is enhanced by a delicate hint of vanilla and spice. On the palate it shows excellent harmony with elegant acidity, well-integrated sweet tannins and enormous concentration of aromas.
Hofstatter Pinot Nero Barthenau
Founded by Joseph Hofstätter a century ago, the estate comprises extensive vineyards with five historic manor houses located on either side of the Adige Valley. The most important of these is Barthenau, home of the famous Vigna S. Urbano Pinot Nero- a result of Paolo Foradori’s recognition of the estate’s potential for world-class Pinot Noir. Today, Joseph’s grand nephew, Martin Foradori-Hofstätter, passionately maintains a delicate balance between tradition and innovation, producing wines of exceptional character and type.
