J. Hofstatter produces white wines that are considered benchmarks for the region. Grown in ideal microclimates, the this Pinot Bianco is elegant with harmonious structure.
Terroir: Massive prehistoric glaciers dug a broad gorge in the porphyry massif between the Ortler Alps and the Dolomites and created the Adige River and Lake Caldaro, which is fed by groundwater. Soils are made up of light marl. Vines average 30+ years old.
Vinification: The grapes are lightly pressed and the must is clarified using natural sedimentation, after which it is fermented at a controlled temperature and aged shortly in 100% stainless steel.
Medium-full straw yellow in colour, fresh aromas of peach combined with apple and pear on the nose, elegant and zesty on the palate, harmonious in structure, round with masses of finesse and a hint of nut on the finish.
