Review

The Foradori vineyards are located in the Campo Rotaliano, a small plain hidden away amongst steep rocky walls where, depending on the soil composition, several different terroirs can be distinguished. The vines, the result of a massal selection from old vineyards, planted in 12 of those parcels with an alluvial soil, combine to create this wine.

As is well known, Elisabetta Foradori's winery doesn't use chemical products and operates in accordance with biodynamic certification. The huge respect always shown to Nature and a close observation of the vineyards enable the most clear-cut expression of the Teroldego to show through, a mountain variety in whose recuperation Foradori has spent more than 20 years working hard.

The grape must ferments in concrete tanks, often with a small amount of the stalks, and matures for a year in large-volume wooden and concrete containers which allow the fruit's essence to be preserved and concentrate the wine. This can easily be discerned in the depth of its Picota cherry colour and the intensity of its red fruit (redcurrants and cherries). On the palate, minerality and freshness ooze from all sides, combining hints of ash and scrubland blue flowers. Its fruit is rounded, nigh on perfect, generous and juicy. Its finish, with a marked acidity, defines the varietal's profile to perfection.

    Bold and characteristic

    Bold, plummy aroma with a pleasant and surprisingly high acidity. Elegant cherry and spices combined with earthy notes. Good pick with meat.

    You better quick

    Wonderful deep red colored wine from a forgotten grape made in a natural way - in amphora's instead of barrels. You better quick before it is sold out.

    Elegante e fruttato. Autentico.

    Elegante e fruttato. Dal profumo intenso ma non troppo lungo. Ottimo con primi piatti saporiti e carni bianche. Un vino autentico da una cantina che da sempre fa una grande ricerca sul legame tra il territorio e l'uomo.
