Tenuta J. Hofstatter, Trentino - Alto Adige

Inky, smoky, ash almost, graphite, like an iron grate on the nose.  Cherry and tobacco on the palate with chalky bite and a peppery, herbaceous finish.  A fireside wine  - bitter chocolate and black tea.
‘Lagrein Steinrafler, the first top-flight wine from this grape to be made outside of Gries near Bolzano'
Wine Advocate


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.
