This wine is the valued result of the careful selection of Pinot Bianco, Müller Thurgau, Sauvignon and Riesling variety grapes. The grapes are gently pressed on delivery, the juice is cleared by natural sedimentation, after which fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature. Bright, vivid pale yellow in colour with green reflexes. On the nose the aromas are clear-cut, reminiscent of freshly-picked apples, lemon grass, with a light hint of vanilla. After brief contact with oxygen in the glass the wine develops intense floral and nutty aromas. On the palate it is vivacious, fresh with crisp, tingling acidity. The interplay between accentuated fruit and flowery aromas follows through and strongly characterises the wine. Harmonious and well-structured in flavour, minerally with excellent length.

The producer

For a century, the name Hofstatter has been associated by connoisseurs with a producer of excellent wines in Alto Adige. It was Josef Hofstatter who laid the foundations on which the company has been built. He was actually a blacksmith, but he also produced home-made wine for his wife, Maria. Producing home-made wine was, in fact, quite common at the time. His love of wine came from these origins. It was not long before he abandoned his profession to dedicate himself with passion, talent and common sense to wine-making. And so, before long Josef Hofstatter wines became famous in Italy and abroad with a client base that gets larger year by year. After the death of Josef in 1942, the company passed on to his descendant Konrad Oberhofer and his wife, Luise. Konrad Oberhofer was perfectly aware of the potential of the family's vines. He was one of the first in Alto Adige to begin harvesting and making-wine separately, vine by vine, and to put these wines on the market, not as an anonymous product, but as wine with different denominations (the "Crus"). In 1959 Konrad's daughter, Sieglinde, married the wine-maker Paolo Foradori, whose family had been successfully dedicated to wine-making at Mazon near Egna for decades. With this marriage the best vineyards in Bassa Atesina were united. Termeno and Mazon therefore became the foundations on which, today more than ever, the company and the family stand. Management of the vineyards and the cellars has now been passed on to the fourth generation, Martin Foradori, whose young man's impulses and desire for innovation draw on nearly a century of experience.
