Foradori Teroldego Rotaliano 2007
Teroldego is a cousin of Syrah and thrives in the warm and cool nights of this mountainous region. Dark and spicy this medium to full bodied red is brimming with bright fruits and hints of black pepper and herbs. Made from 40 year old vines and aged in small oak casks for 12 months this wine is great alone or with food.

External Reviews for Foradori Teroldego Rotaliano
Even better than I remember. Still very ruby, with a black center. It's rich with berry, tar and black licorice aromas and hints of mint and spice. Full-bodied. Tannins are polished and refined, giving the wine a silky texture. Long and flavorful yet subtle. It's just beginning to be ready but I would give it a few more years. Best after 2009.
Ripe, silky tannins caress the palate as the 2007 Granato emerges from the glass. Crushed, flowers, raspberries and spices meld together beautifully in this mid-weight, gracious Granato. Today the aromas and flavors are quite primary, but the wine should harmonize to a greater extent with another year or two in bottle. Subtle notes of oak linger on the elegant, polished finish. This is another superb Granato from Elisabetta Foradori. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.
Okay, so some grapes were obviously not named by Madison Avenue. But whenever we find a wine as delightful and distinctive as this ripe, blackberry-flavored red, we happily take on any pronunciation-related challenges that may be involved in offering it to our customers.
The spectacular 1997 Granato has finally arrived. Aged in small barriques, it is an enormously concentrated, massive, full-bodied, rustic, huge, chewy offering with abundant quantities of tarry black fruits drenched in toasty oak. Although far from drinkable, it is a highly promising blockbuster. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring; it should keep for two decades.
