Elisabetta Foradori, Sgarzon 2018


Vigneti delle Dolomiti

"Sgarzon" is a red wine expressing a peculiar character of the Terolego grape.

It is bursting with bright cherry, raspberry and cranberry fruit, followed by fresh violets, and a stony hint. Grown in the cool climate of the Dolomiti mountains, the wine is particularly vital and fruity carrying remarkable freshness and minerality.

The ageing in amphorae for 8 months emphasizes, instead, the intense fruity notes and a full and robust, yet velvety, structure. This is a stunning, age-worthy Teroldego.

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.
