Tenuta J. Hofstätter Barthenau Vigna S. Urbano Pinot Nero wine is a carefully crafted gem from the Trentino-Alto Adige region in Italy. This divine Pinot Nero possesses distinctive finesse with a subtle complexity rarely found. Its elegantly intense ruby red colour preludes the enchanting bouquet of ripe cherries and wild berries. Its rich flavour bears an understated fruitiness, married harmoniously with charming notes of mineral and spice. Skillfully aged in oak barrels, the wine unveils a lingering, refined finish that leaves an indelible imprint on one's palate. This wine is the epitome of luxury and sophistication, ideal for savouring on special occasions.
A superb Pinot Nero, whose concentration is clearly heralded by its dark ruby colour. Initially it seems somewhat closed on the nose, but then opens up in the glass to reveal its authentic, noble Pinot Nero 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.
About the Winery
Nestled in the beautiful Alto Adige region of Northern Italy, the Tenuta J. Hofstätter winery holds a rich history of exquisite winemaking. Originally established in 1907 by Joseph Hofstätter, this winery has become a cornerstone of the Italian wine industry, known for its top-quality wines that exude both elegance and depth.
With a vineyard spread across 50 hectares, Tenuta J. Hofstätter isn't just large, but also known for its magnificent diversity. The winery's vineyard spans both sides of the Adige River and extends into four different growing zones; each one offering a unique soil composition and microclimate. This myriad of growing conditions leads to a wealth of diverse and versatile wines, each expressing a distinctive character and an intensely pronounced multi-layered depth.
As a family-owned estate now steered by the fourth generation Hofstätter, the winery continues to adhere to its core values of tradition, honesty, and quality. The family believes in working intimately with nature, rejecting intensive farming practices in favour of those that respect the environment and maintain the health of the vineyard; this commitment to sustainable farming shows in every delicious drop of their wine.
Tenuta J. Hofstätter is particularly renowned for their Pinot Noir, a wine that's rare in Italy but thrives in the climatic conditions of their vineyards. They also produce some of the country's finest white wines such as Gewürztraminer and Pinot Bianco in the region.
In a world where wine production often favours quantity over quality, Tenuta J. Hofstätter stands as testament to the brilliance of artisanal winemaking. Through traditional methods along with a deep respect for the land and the grapes, the winery continues to produce some of Italy's most beloved and celebrated wines.
