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.
Elisabetta Foradori’s Teroldegos are considered to be among the best. Teroldego (pronounced teh-ROHL-deh-goh) is related to Syrah. The grape is deeply pigmented, and usually has firm tannins and bright acidity. Dark fruit, pepper, earth, leather and a pleasing bitterness are all characteristics associated with this grape which tends to be more savory than explosively fruity, all while be very easy drinking.
This wine is made from 100% Teroldego grapes sourced from a few vineyards in the Campo Rotaliano area, grown on alluvial soils. Fermented in in amphorae, on the skins for 8 months + 12 months (with no skin) in amphorae.
