Despite a long maceration on the skins, what we have here is a very clear juice, closer to a white wine, since the Nosiola grape variety is very low in tannins. A dry wine, rich and direct, with notes of orange blossom and grapefruit. It’s delightfully surprising!
Elisabetta Foradori cultivates 26 hectares nestled amidst the Dolomite Mountains, in Mezzolombardo, on the Campo Rotaliano plain. Her family estate was founded there in 1901 on an exceptional terroir. The viticulture advocated by Elisabetta is profoundly rooted in her own principals about life, biodiversity, and energy, with biodynamics strongly informing her views on the latter. The use of old native grape varieties, such as Teroldego or Nosiolam, greatly contributes to the incredible personality exhibited by all of her wines. In terms of vinification, Elisabetta and her team believe in a policy of non-intervention in the cellar where they tend to add nothing at all to the wine. For her, a winemaker’s only concern should be to “guide” the wine to insure its natural character can reach its full potential. Very little sulphur, and no filtration. Elisabetta produces splendid wines which rank among the most refined in Italy.
What a wine! Insanely charming, an unbelievable personality! A powerful nose, very aromatic, with notes of flowers, violet candy, and sage. A well-rounded, lively, balanced and mineral palate. This is some clean, precise juice, and, needless to say, one of our favourites.
A tannic orange wine, with lovely bitter notes, as one would only expect after 8 months of skin maceration! A dry wine, rich and direct, with notes of apricot and orange. It’s delightfully surprising!
A dark, powerful Teroldego. This is solid juice, crafted to only improve over time. A nose with notes of violet, black fruits, and cacao. Palate: fruity, dense, mineral and powerful. The wines of Elisabetta are the epitome of elegance.
