Foradori, Teroldego 2018 Trentino, Italy

Brilliant garnet

Pure, intense, dark fruit with underlying spice

Soft yet penetrating, its sweetness is backed by a supporting acidity that weaves elegantly amongst the fruit

About the Producer

Renowned winemaker, Elisabetta Foradori is one of the 10 who make up the Dolomitici group; an assembly of Trentino-Alto Adige winemakers united to support the preservation and production of endangered local grape varieties. 

 

It could be said that she has single handedly brought the intriguing Teroldego grape back from the brink. She is also one of the key figureheads of Biodynamic production in the Trentino. She is someone deeply attached to her nativeland 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.  Elisabetta shows how this wine can be truly great and exemplifies the true taste of the mountains.

I can't think of a more comforting and cozy combination than this creamy, cheesey, and peppery pasta dish paired with a glass of Teroldego which offers just the right amount of fruit and spice but is also soft and velvety. It's mouth-watering acidity helps cut through the richness.
