    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

    This wine sees extended skin contact in clay amphorae that lasts up to six months. The 2017 Nosiola Fontanasanta opens to a beautifully luminous and light appearance. In fact, you'd hardly know the wine had so much skin contact if you were only to consider its clear and transparent appearance. However, the key to reading this wine is through that extended skin maceration, because the Nosiola grape tends to offer very neutral aromas in its natural state. The chemicals in the skins add layers of candied orange, beeswax and chamomile flower. There are terpene tones of dried sage and white pepper as well. Some 10,000 bottles were made.

    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 94/100
