Teroldego Sgarzon Cilindrica - 2018 - Elisabetta Foradori
A cuvée that strikes the perfect balance between elegance, finesse and depth. A nose of black cherries, rosebuds, blood orange and clove. A palate that’s pure, silky, and intensely dense, yet with polished tannins, and a long, fresh finish. One of our great favourites.

100% Teroldego from vineyards farmed biodynamically and planted on a patch of alluvial soils, mostly sandy called the "Vigneto Sgarzon" parcel, which covers a total of 2.5 hectares. The grapes are harvested by hand, then vinified naturally, without any additives: fermentation is longer than a classic Sgarzon, including 8 months of maceration in 350-litre amphorae, followed by pressing, and 12 months of maturation in the same amphorae. Bottled without fining or filtration, and just a microdose of sulphur.

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.
