J. Hofstätter Pinot Nero "Meczan" 2005 Alto Adige 13,5% abv
This was about 18€ here until Alko dumped the last stocks at just under 15€. I liked it when I tried it about a year ago, so I decided to buy one to accompany my boeuf bourguignon. It has very attractive Pinosity and no oak (IIRC it only sees stainless). It smells of ripe, sweet fruit and beetroot. It may not have the magic that Burgundy can achieve, but it is a very attractive scent.
Medium bodied, a bit fruit-heavy for my tastes, but still an attractive drink: softer in structure than I remembered from a year ago, yet the fruit hasn't faded at the same rate. Not terribly complex or long, but with nice purity of fruit. Decent, but not great QPR when discounted to 15€.
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.
No longer ITB.
