Foradori Teroldego 2015 - November 2017 Decanter review
It could be said that Elisabetta Foradori has single handedly brought the intriguing Teroldego grape back from the brink of extinction. She is also one of the key figureheads of Biodynamic production in the Trentino. She is someone deeply attached to her native land and vineyards. 'My memories are here. I’ve known in my mind ever since I was a small girl that the only place I felt well was in nature, maybe because I was born and raised among vineyards.' Today she resides over a beautiful estate of some 26 hectares and produces 160 000 bottles of superb biodynamic wine from various local varieties but her signature wine is Teroldego. Their wines are certified as both Organic and Biodynamic.
Foradori Teroldego IGT is marked by the purity, dignity and intensity of its fruit. Soft, yet penetrating its sweetness is backed by a supporting acidity that weaves elegantly amongst the fruit. The wine is fermented with ambient yeasts in cement. It is then aged in cement vats and foudres.
The Foradori Teroldego IGT has aromas of plum, black cherry and raspberry, with black fruits, strawberries, tar, and spicy oak on the palate, enhanced with chocolate and a slight menthol note. It has snappy acidity, low tannins, is light in body and intensity with plums, cherry and raspberry coming through on the finish.
