Elegant and Distinctive Reds from Alto Adige

  1. Hi Tom,

    I’m late to the party, but on behalf of DSWE, thanks so much for the great review of ’08 J. Hofstatter Vigna S. Urbano Barthenau, and providing some background on Martin Foradori.

    Alto Adige has a remarkable ability to churn out balance, structured wines, and as Americans continue placing a great emphasis on food-pairing, I think this region could catch the attention of more and more people. Thanks for continuing to place Alto Adige front-of-mind with your wine loving readers!

    1. Jon:

      Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I think it is important to note the sturcture of Alto Adige wines, as these are wines that can age gracefully as well as offer enjoyment with a wide range of foods upon release. Martin at J. Hofstatter is among the very best producers in this region.
