Trentino Alto Adige
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.
Crunchy, high acid and rich in red berry notes with just a touch of black fruit and pepper. The wine’s freshness, bright acidity and subtle pleasantly bitter quality makes it a wonderful food partner.
100% Teroldego spontaneously fermented in cement tanks, unfined, 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. This particular wine is made with less skin contact, hence the lighter colour of the wine.
