2008 Hofstätter Barthenau "San Urbano" Pinot Nero

SKU #1132867 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Tart cherry scents course through this wine, layered under a firm structure that keeps all the juicy red fruit at bay. The tannins are smoky, almost radish-like in their earthy spice, the fruit lasting past them to create a honeyed note in the finish. Cellar it, or decant the wine for braised beef cheeks. Inner quote mark (8/2012)
