Producer: With fifty hectares of vineyards, Tenuta J. Hofstätter is one of the largest private wine estates in Alto Adige, and yet manages to live up to its reputation for absolutely pristine quality. It is meticulously run by fourth generation Martin Foradori Hofstätter, whose ancestor Joseph founded the estate in 1907. The pinnacle of the range is the single-vineyard Vigna S. Urbano Pinot Nero, planted in the 1950s by Martin’s father. His neighbours thought he was mad at the time; this is now one of the finest expressions of Pinot Noir not just in Alto Adige, but in the whole of Europe.

Vineyard: Hofstätter’s vineyards are situated on both sides of the Adige river, at between 250 and 800 metres altitude. The Gewürztraminer is grown on gravelly clay-limestone soil. The grapes were harvested by hand.

Winery: The grapes were lightly crushed and given a few hours’ skin contact, then pressed, settled and fermented at controlled temperatures. Taste This is a highly individual wine and a textbook Gewürztraminer: full, bright straw yellow, concentrated with a strong aromatic character reminiscent of dried flowers and rose petals which develops and intesifies in the glass. Full-bodied, luscious but dry on the palate, the opulence cut by vibrant, firm acidity.
