Granato 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Dichte kirschrote Farbe. Komplexes, konzentriertes Fruchtaroma; fruchtig (Kirsche, schwarze Johannisbeere), würzig und floral (Tabak, Veilchen, Minze) in Kombination mit einer eleganten Holznote. Kraftvoller, gradliniger Ansatz; konzentriert, dicht und lang im Gaumen. Lange anhaltendes, frisches und fruchtiges Finale mit kräftigem, aber keineswegs aggressivem Gerbstoff.

Azienda Agricola Elisabetta Foradori:
The cliffs of the Adige Valley change their appearance as the light shifts across them: awe inspiring when they are veiled by shade or darkened by a heavy sky; and enchanting when the sun shines on them, as they are tinted with delicate shades of pink.

The cliffs of the Adige Valley change their appearance as the light shifts across them: awe inspiring when they are veiled by shade or darkened by a heavy sky; and enchanting when the sun shines on them, as they are tinted with delicate shades of pink. The river too changes its mood as the weather changes: when there is bad weather, its rough waters become a whirlpool of green and blue, while on calm evenings they become a sparkling silver ribbon. No one with a sensitive soul can cross this land without being touched by its beauty. After the narrow Salorno Gorge, visitors travelling from the north are welcomed by the marvellous sight of a wide valley. Vineyards and orchards are scattered among these rocky outcrops. Near San Michele all’Adige, on the right bank of the Adige River, a wide plain unfolds beneath the mountains: its name is Campo Rotaliano. This is where the Teroldego, one of the country’s best grapes, thrives. Despite its charm and beauty, this stretch of country is still waiting to be discovered in all its wonder. It is no coincidence that this striking landscape marks the linguistic and cultural boundary between the Tyrol and Trentino, between north and south - an invisible border, yet nevertheless a border. This is where Elisabetta Foradori was born. The Noce valley, Campo Rotaliano with the towns of Mezzolombardo and Mezzocorona, has seen tribes and rulers come and go – Rhaeto-Etruscan settlers, the Romans, Celts, Longobards, Franks, Tyroleans, Austrians, Bavarians and Italians. Whether conquerors or settlers, traders or mercenaries, all have left their mark at this crossroads where valleys, rivers and mountain ranges converge and diverge. Read less

A classic expression of Teroldego on the nose with mineral driven, tarry, animale (-) black fruit tones. This gains a touch of floral and apricot like fruit though it smells a touch woody, as well. Really fine and precise in the mouth with mineral tones right up front, juicy berry fruit on the mid-palate, and a fresh finish that does show a touch of heat but remains brisk and long with a touch of plum skin. 91pts

Dark red in the glass. Raisin, plum and a bit toasty on the nose. On the palate you find blueberries and vanilla with a fresh acidity but this falls short going into the finish

The 2006 Granato further establishes Foradori as one of Italy's premier winemakers. This is a stunning red from start to finish. The wine bursts onto the palate with a never-ending kaleidoscope of dried roses, spices, pomegranate and raspberries. This medium to full-bodied Granato possesses stunning balance and finessed, elegant tannins that caress the palate with notable elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2021. Shows wonderful aromas of raspberry and cut flowers, with a hint of tar. Full-bodied, with supervelvety tannins, a beautiful core of fruit and a long, long finish. Rich and powerful, yet wonderfully textured. Best after 2011. 3,500 cases made. -JS

Super dark purple, almost black, opaque with full intensity. A perfume of black cherry and cassis with pulverized limestone lifts from the glass. The palate copies the nose of this precise, well-made Teroldego, with excellent concentration of black ... Andy Frieden. A Teroldego wine from Trentino Alto Adige in Italy. 2006 Foradori Granato 375ml
