This wine is the valued result of a careful and exclusive selection of Sauvignon grapes, Grapes are immediately destemmed upon delivery and macerated on the skins for 8 hours before being gently pressed. The must is clarified through natural sedimentation and fermented at a controlled temperature. This wine makes a youthful impression with its fresh, pale yellow and subtle green-yellow highlights. The inviting bouquet initially reveals notes of gooseberry paired with a touch of currant followed by nuances of elderflower, nettles and flint. The palate makes an equally refreshing impression due to a crisp, elegant, appetizing acidity that is superbly integrated. The extraordinary freshness that characterizes this wine continues the entire length of the mouth. Well balanced and firmly structured, this wine impresses with notes of minerals and clearly defined varietal aromas on the finish.

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.

Excellent with starters, fish and light meat.

How to serve it

The wine should be served at 12 - 13 degrees centigrade in clear, transparent crystal goblets.

How to keep

This is not a wine to age for a very long time and should therefore be drunk within a maximum of three or four years of purchase. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.
