Oily and smoky on the nose with lots lots of pipe tobacco and used pipe briar aromas. Rich, seamless, and powerful in the mouth. This shows lots of depth on the palate though some wood tannins do intrude on the midplane. Ultimately one finds more power, less detail here and the wine wraps up with a tough, tannic finish. There’s lots of red fruit up a chunky midpalate, then not a lot of detail on the back end. 88pts

very tight on the nose with not much going on, some graphite and jammy black fruit with a nice mineral edge emerges with air. This is rich and soft in the mouth though there are solid acids here. The fruit is fairly dark at first then decidedly cherry and more opaque with some bitter wood tannin on the finish. A rich wine with goof length but one that lacks a bit of aromatic depth. 88pts

This features a dark nose with funghi and mineral overtones and a deep and intense core of fruit with cedar, white peppercorn, and cacao tinged oak notes. This is very broad with superb acids and soft tannins. There’s a touch smoldering campfire embedded in the very ripe fruits, but really stays fresh with decent length. Certainly still fruity, but a tad amorphous. 90pts

Deep black fruits, velvety smooth with a very mineral finish. Tasted at the New York Wine Experience

Dark red in the glass. Black cherry, blueberry and vanilla on the nose. In the mouth this is rich and full with cherry cough syrup, tar, spices and cinnamon.

The 2003 Granato opens with an intense aroma of fruit compotte and fresh flowers. After the first sip nauces of licorice and dark berries alternate with . Full-bodied, with plenty of fruit, fine tannins and a lingering finish. Will drink best after 2009 and mature over the next 10-15 years.

Day 2 - Still very smokey, oaky, grilled meats, morefruit but still to black. The nose begins to show some movement with several additional hours, pop goes the pomegranite, then a nuance of pollen and some dandelion greens, so there is hope, at the end of the evening there were notes of insipient blackberry jam and rare meat as well. In the mouth the wine is surprisingly elegant considering every previous experience, finish is still very short and tight with it's hints of sour red and black fruits, a subtle note of mint on the mid-palate offers up a bit of refreshing contrast. At the end of the evening notes of mineral and saffron are jioned by a bit of plummy fruit on the finish. Not a great showing, perhaps this will blossom with time but given the track record I do not expect great improvement. The Sgarzon bottlings have shown to have greater potential for development and maybe some of my hope springs from that pinnacle of Teroldego expression.

Dark ruby. Sweet, ripe aromas of red cherry syrup, tobacco and brown spices, with a hint of raspberry liqueur. Dense, thick and sweet on the palate, but with sound acidity framing the rich flavors of red cherry, tobacco and mocha. Finishes broad and very long, with the tannins thoroughly buffered by the wine's rich mid-palate fruit. This is currently an infant and comes across as a little chunky and one-dimensionally fruity, but it has all the trappings to turn into a standout Granato.

Aromatic dried herb and violet notes lace this open-knit, creamy red. Bright and lively, with pure flavors of plum sauce, black raspberry, salumi, star anise, espresso and forest floor. Accessible now but suited to the cellar, displaying elegance and integration, density and cut. Teroldego. Drink now through 2024.

Constantly changing in the glass, it offers a kaleidoscope of smoke, tar, graphite, earthiness, roasted coffee beans and sweet dark fruit sensations. It is gorgeously ample and long on t...

Foradori's prized Granato is made from old vines Teroldego. A full-bodied red wine that's full of dark cherries, pomegranite and spice on the palate. It's aged in mostly new wood for 18 months.
