The Meczan Pinot Noir is distinguished by its unmistakable varietal character, its distinctive aroma and fruity character, by its bright ruby color with garnet reflexes, and its fresh, stimulating bouquet with seductive hints of woodland berries and cherry. On the palate Meczan is harmonious, sappy and mellow with impressive fruit.
Hofstatter Pinot Nero Meczan
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.
