    Foradori

    Elisabetta Foradori de 'grande dame' van de Italiaanse 'vino naturali' leid haar familie wijngoed in de Italiaanse Dolomiti naar grote hoogte. Zij en haar overleden man Rainer Zierock 'redden' de blauwe Tereldogo druif van de ondergang. In haar Granato wijngaard vinden we nog oerklonen van deze spannende blauwe druif. Rond 2013 maken haar zonen Theo en Emilio hun intreden in het bedrijf en in 2018 doed ze zelf een stap terug en mag de nieuwe generatie hun gang gaan. Vanaf de oogst van 2016 proef je de invloed van Emilio als wijnmaker terug!  Na 35 jaar hard werken stort Elisabetta zich op een nieuw project, ze gaat kaas maken van de melk van haar eigen acht koeien. 

    Review

    Here's a very special taste of one of the newest wines to come from Foradori. This family has been experimenting with long cylinder-shaped amphorae (cilindrica) made by Spanish potter Juan Padilla. These vessels remain above ground (they are not buried) in a special cellar at the back of the winery. It is a beautiful site to see, especially during fermentation when you can hear the fizzing and dripping sounds of winemaking. The 2015 Teroldego Morei Cilindrica sees fruit sourced from a warm vineyard site characterized by long sun hours and alluvial soils with large round rocks. This is an exuberant and generous expression that never holds back (like Sgarzon is known to do). Instead, you get ripe fruit that is succulent, soft and rich in fiber. I am absolutely seduced by this gorgeous wine. Bottle production is very small (350 bottles) with this first production.

    The big news at this celebrated estate in Mezzolombardo is that Elisabetta Foradori has handed winemaking responsibilities over to her sons Emilio and Theo Zierock. I tasted these wines with Emilio at the winery. The 2017 vintage was very difficult, with bad weather and hail that destroyed much of the Teroldego harvest. As a result, the 2017 Teroldego Foradori and the 2017 Pinot Grigio Fuoripista were not produced. Because of the reduced harvest yields in 2017, a new wine called Lezèr was born. It is made with Teroldego and sees very short skin maceration times (a mere 48 hours) in order to safeguard the wine's crunchy freshness. The most exciting news from this estate is the launch of two single-vineyard expressions of Teroldego (Sgarzon and Morei) aged in long amphorae called cilindrica. Monica Larner 95/100
