Pinot Nero Barthenau Vigna S.urbano Hofstatter Trentino Alto-Adige Vino Rosso Italiano 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Soils: marly, light, well ventilated and warm up quickly in spring Wine-making: The grapes are lightly crushed and the juice is cold macerated for a few hours together with the skins. The mass is then pressed, the must is clarifi ed by natural sedimentation and fermentation takes place at a constant temperature of 20 ˚C. All these procedures combine to exalt the typical varietal character of the wine. Maturation and organoleptic characteristics: Our Gewürztraminer is matured for 6 months, partly in stainless steel and partly in large oak casks. This Gewürztraminer expresses the full unique varietal character of the grape: full, bright straw yellow, good concentration with an accentuated aromatic character reminiscent of smoked spices, dried fl owers and rose petals which develops and intensifi es in the glass. On the palate it is full and unctuous, fi rm and deliciously fresh and lively. To enjoy this wine at its best we recommend that you cellar it for at least one year to allow it to develop to the full its classic bouquet. Goes especially well with: on its own as an aperitif, with shellfi sh, goose liver, oysters and gorgonzola cheese

Any way you describe this - Pinot Nero or Blauburgunder - one thing is certain: this is perfect for those who enjoy traditional red Burgundy. It's delightfully earthy, with beautiful red-berried fruit, almond-peel tannins and playful acidity. Food is a must; something saucy, meaty or gamey would be ideal.
