The winery we know today as Foradori was founded in 1901 Northern Italy’s Alto Adige region. It was in 1939 that Vittorio Foradori purchased the winery and began a family run wine estate that is now in its fourth generation. In 1984, Vittorio’s granddaughter, Elisabetta Foradori, after having completed her enological studies, joined the team and completed her first vintage at the family estate. She is widely credited with helping revive the popularity and quality of the Teroldego grape through masal selection. In 2002 the estate began it’s conversion to biodynamic farming and received Demeter status in 2009. In 2012 Elizabetta’s son, Emilio joined his mother in winemaking at the estate. Here in an impressive landscape, surrounded by the Dolomiti mountains, they cultivate native grapes on both alluvial and calcarous clay soils. They produce soulful wines that show purity and freshness, allowing indigenous grapes to shine and express this unique terroir.
Ripe-red fruit character, dark tart cherry and subtle floral notes on the nose and palate. Medium bodied with firm fine grained tannins and high acidity. A slight chewy texture and mouth-wateringly fresh on the finish. A wine full of tension and energy.
“Sgarzon” literally means shoot in the local dialect of the Campo Rotaliano area. The Sgarzon Teroldego Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT is made from Teroldego grapes grown in the 2.5 hectare Sgarzon vineyard of Campo Rotaliano. The soil is alluvial and mostly sandy and the vines benefit from the cooler climate that characterizes this site. The wine is fermented then spends eight months in amphorae (Tinajas from Villarrobledo, Spain), with skin contact.
