Foradori  was founded in 1901 Northern Italy’s Alto Adige region. In 1984 Elisabetta Foradori, after having completed her enological studies, completed her first vintage at her family estate. She is widely credited with helping revive the popularity and quality of the Teroldego grape. In 2002 the estate began it’s conversion to biodynamic farming and received Demeter status in 2009. Here sourounded by the Dolomiti mountains Elisabetta cultivates native grapes on both alluvial and calcarous clay soils

Tasting Notes

Pale ruby in the glass.  Fresh red berry notes with a hint of black fruit and pepper.  The palate is juicy and fresh with bright acidity, crunchy red fruit and minerality.  A subtle and pleasantly bitter quality makes this a wonderful wine to enjoy with high acid food and bitter greens. This wine is easy and unpretentious and extremely gulpable, especially when served slightly chilled. 

Method

The idea of creating a light Teroldego to celebrate the summer was something that interested Azienda Agricola Foradori for some time but it wasn’t until the hail storms of August 2017, which destroyed 40% of the harvest that Elizabetta decided to have a go. From the small amount of fruit harvested that vintage Lezer was born; a light fresh red made via a short maceration.  This wine was born with the spirit of experimentation and continues to develop in this way;  the use of amphorae, wood, cement and steel and never leaving the grapes on the skins for more than 24 hours. 

Lezer is made from 100% Teroldego, spontaneously fermented in various tanks, unfined and unfiltered with low sulfites. 

If you are unfamiliar with this grape, it is related to Syrah and has a similar dark inky colour, a peppery taste and firm, but not astringent tannins.
