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. The latter on full display here.
The Manzoni Bianco variety is a genetic cross between Riesling and Pinot Blanc. It sees a small amount of skin contact on its way to bottle. The wine in the glass is beautifully aromatic, crisp yet textural. It's a charming, idiosyncratic white that you'll want to sit and sniff on all afternoon.
