Elisabetta Foradori, Teroldego 2019

Foradori

2019
Vigneti delle Dolomiti

The Foradori vineyards are in conversion to biodynamic viticulture, working without chemicals and according to the Marie Thun calendar.

This wine comes from Elisabetta Foradori’s hard work which has resulted in a medium bodied ruby red wine. With an intesnse nose of plum and black cherry, along with tar, raspberry, cranberry and a slight menthol note complete the multiple scents that arise whilst tasting it and during the aftertaste. Its snappy acidity and low tannins contribute to massage your mouth together with its juiciness. An amazing wine from a very forward thinking producer.

Trentino Alto-Adige

Trentino Alto-Adige

Trentino Alto-Adige is characterized by the alpine peaks which soar for many thousands of feet above the Adige river Valley. The region follows the Adige river along its north-south course down from the Alps towards the plains, winding past various valleys and lakes.

Trentino-Alto Adige produces 8 DOCs and has a wide range of varieties: Schiava, Teroldego, Lagrein, and international grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir among the most widely used. The standard red Trentino Rosso is made from the Cabernet grapes, with Merlot also thrown in to make it a near-complete Bordeaux Blend. Its white Trentino Bianco counterpart has Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco as its base, with Sauvignon Blanc, Muller-Thurgau and Manzoni Bianco as permitted auxiliaries.

Grape varieties In addition to the dominant local varieties Schiava and Lagrein, there's more and more interest for Teroldego and Pinot Noir amongst red grapes, while the main white grape vaeriteis are: Muller-Thurgau, Sylvaner and Gewurztraminer and some very fine examples of Sauvignon and Pinot Bianco, with other indigenous grapes like Nosiola.
