About The Wine
Elisabetta Foradori is a trailblazing organic wine grower from the town of Trentino in Mezzolambardo.
Her first vintage was in 1984, with her conversion to biodynamics beginning in 2002. By 2007 she was certified and now is considered one of the most forward thinking wine growers in Italy with a huge international profile. Her wines are made with a natural sensibility. The gentle use of clay amphora and inert vessels for ferments and maturation sees her mainline a sense of place from grape to glass.
Foradori works with four local varieties: Teroldego, Pinot Grigio, Nosiola and Manzoni Bianco.
Many say she is solely responsible for saving Teroldego from extinction.
This frisky interpretation of the variety is a combination of many different shorter ferments, all spending less than a day on skins. It's a wine with fine detail and complexity as well as ultimate smashability. A lighter-framed red with some attitde and perfect for warm weather consumption.
