J. Hofstatter Meczan Pinot Nero Alto Adige DOC 2009 at Osteria Philly @JeffreyMichaud

We enjoyed this Pinot Nero at Osteria last week; Pinot Nero is the Italian Pinot Noir and this is from the Alto Adige region.  This wine was very smooth, fruit forward and a light tannin finish.  I’d say it was in the medium-dry range and complimented our dinner perfectly.  Personally, I think Pinot Noir is one of the most versatile wines and in this case, pleased the multiple palates at the table.

On a side note, the vegetable antipasti at Osteria is amazing, especially the brussels sprouts, oven roasted tomatoes, julienned squash salad, and salt roasted beets.  Other winners were the corn bolognese, skate wing, and the lemon & raspberry charlotte.
