Tenuta J. Hofstatter, Trentino - Alto Adige

Perhaps the most successful of the Germanic grapes in Italy (also known locally as Traminer Aromatico) this is surprisingly drier than more familiar Alsatian/Austrian/Rhinish efforts. Spicy but delicate, and rather good with smoked fish or even as an aperitivo as is not so perfumed or richly sweet as the the styles one habitually matchmakes with South-East Asian cuisine.

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.
