Tenuta J. Hofstatter, Trentino - Alto Adige

A delicious Pinot Noir from unquestionably Italy’s finest producer of this often challenging grape knocks spots off similarly-priced red Burgundies. The vineyard benefits from a bio-dynamic approach to pest control and with its soft, spicy, supple aromas and flavours of wild strawberries and red cherries, woodsmoke, smoked almonds and bitter chocolate, the wine can be paired with cold meats, poultry dishes, and rustic Tyrolean classics like barley and ham hock soup.

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.
