Professional Ratings: 92 The Wine Advocate
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Item no. 123154
A superb Pinot Nero, whose concentration is clearly heralded by its dark ruby color. Initially it seems somewhat closed on the nose, then opens up to reveal its aroma of sour cherry and raspberry. It is enhanced by a delicate hint of vanilla and spice. On the palate, the wine shows excellent harmony with elegant acidity, well-integrated sweet tannins and enormous concentration of aromas.
The 2008 Barthenau Vigna S. Urbano emerges from the glass with dark cherries, flowers, sweet spices and French oak. Hints of licorice, smoke and tar develop in the glass, adding complexity and nuance. The Barthenau Vigna S. Urbano, the estate's top Pinot, is made in a distinctly flashy, fruit-driven style. The intense, saline finish gives the wine its energy and drive. This is another beautiful wine from Hofstatter.
