Features


The ruby red color already reveals its concentration. At first glance the bouquet does not develop completely but in succession releases the typical aromas of a classic "Burgundy". the scent of black cherries and raspberries is underlined by delicate tones of finely spiced vanilla. On the palate this wine, aged in small oak barrels, is well balanced in the components and convincing for an elegant acidity, well integrated tannins and an exceptional aromatic concentration.

Vinification


After a careful harvest, the grapes arrive in the cellar in small crates to maintain the integrity of the berries. 75% of the grapes are de-stemmed, another 25% remains intact for fermentation in barrels. A day of cold maceration is enough to refine the bouquet. A slow fermentation follows for approx. 10 days at a constant temperature, strictly controlled with the skins in continuous contact with the must. The aging in wood includes two distinct phases: the first for about 14 months in small French oak barrels and the second consisting in an assembly of the different barrels in a single large oak barrel for another about 7 months. After bottling, the wine matures further in the bottle for another twelve months in the cellars of the Barthenau estate.

Pairings


Red meats, game, cheeses that are not too spicy.

Producer


The company was founded in 1907 by the hand of Joseph Hofstatter today the great grandson Martin Foradori Hofstatter with a purely family management carries on the estate with its approximately 50 hectares of vines. The vineyards located between 250 and 800 meters above sea level in Bassa Atesina in the province of Bolzano give the opportunity to grow different varieties of grapes, both white and red. The focus is on the traditional varieties for the area: Gewürztraminer, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Nero, Lagrein and Schiava. Hofstätter wines make their origin recognized. They take on the flavor of the exposure where their grapes were born, of the soils and of the microclimate. The Gewürztraminer del Kolbenhof and the Pinot Nero Vigna S. Urbano di Barthenau are among the first wines from South Tyrol to take the name of their place of origin
