Hofstätter Barthenau Vigna S. Michele Pinot Bianco Alto Adige Doc
This is a single vineyard wine sourced from Hofstatter’s Barthenau estate. Hofstatter was the first producer in the Alto-Adige to produce single vineyard wines at the equivalent of the grand cru level.
In order to accentuate the wine’s fruit aromas the juice is left to macerate with the skins for a few hours before pressing. The juice is allowed to clarify through sedimentation, after which it is filled into large oak casks where it ferments. Once the fermentation is complete and the solid parts have settled, the clear young wine is racked, and left to mature together with its fine lees in large oak casks for 15 months during which time the lees are stirred up once a week. The wine is subsequently bottle aged for 6 months before release.
Bottle Size: 750ml
