This wine is the result of the careful and exclusive selection of Lagrein variety grapes, grown on slopping vineyards near Termano and Ora. After the grapes have been separated from the stalks they are left to macerate for a day and then crushed. In this way the coloured substance in the grapeskins only gets into part of the must, which gives the wine its typically seductive rosé colour. Lagrein Rosé is matured for eight months in rustproof steel barrels. It is a typical product from Alto Adige, made from a native species of grapevine. This wine has many tricks up its sleeve in order to impress as a pleasing and flavoursome drink. This is a fresh rosé with a distinct personality, not just any other wine. It has the fragrant aroma of a white wine, and the fruity structure and mellowness of a red wine. It is to be cherished when young. It is a brilliant waxy pink, very clean, frank and balanced, with a fresh acidity that makes it a very desirable drink. It should be served fresh at cellar temperature.

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.
