Tenuta J. Hofstatter, Trentino - Alto Adige

From the excellently-situated Barthenau vineyard which also produces the estate's prizes Vigna S. Urbano Pinot Nero, this predominantly Pinot Bianco blend (with 25% Chardonnay and a splash each of Sauvignon and Riesling) is a wonderfully complex and elegant white.  Concentrated white stone fruits, exotic spices and minerals are balanced by an almost unctuous mid-palate oiliness and zesty acidity. 

The Tenuta J. Hofstatter estate

As well as being home to one of Italy's finest Gerwurztraminer (tre-bicchiere award-winning Cru Kolbenhof) and to date its most exciting and complex offering of Lagrein (Steinraffler Riserva), Martin Foradori's stunningly-situated South Tyrol Estate is best known for making one of Europe's most prestigious Pinot Noirs south of Volnay - Vigna S. Urbano, from its famous Barthenau vineyard.
