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

Hints of wood help frame the blackberry and a little blueberry fruit of the nose. In the mouth this is a bit tannic, even a bit hard today with good intensity to the juicy blackberry fruit that shows a slightly candied edge in the mouth and fades away on the modest finish. Attractive but not terribly distinctive. 86pts

This wine from the base of the alps fills the nose with smoke and moss, followed by a flavors that remind of Blaufrankisch and Zweigelt wines of near-by Austria, but more mellow and a wider range of tastes. Very much a food wine but enjoyable to sip and savor.

Dense fruit nose, deep a earth. Good food wine. Robust enough, yet versatile

The Campo Rotaliano is a well-demarcated geographical area, a sort of recess of the Adige Valley tucked between the mountains. Its history and origin are closely tied to the Noce River, which, over the centuries, has deposited huge quantities of limestone, granite and porphyry debris. Within this small plain, depending on the soil composition, various micro zones can be distinguished, bearing various names given by the local vintners. The wines from the vineyards with a predominantly sandy soil are blended to give our "Foradori" wine. - Winery

Glänzendes Rubinrot; sehr klare und feine, vollreife, rote Fruchtnoten, vermischt mit etwas Biskuitaromen. Dicht im Gaumen, seidige und feingliedrige Tannine, viel Schmelz und Finesse. Das Holz ist dezent und wunderbar eingebettet. Schöne Rückaromatik zum Finale. Ein herrlich femininer Wein mit Ausdruck und Charakter!

The 2009 Teroldego Rotaliano is a big wine with huge fruit that largely masks much of the wildness that is typically present in this indigenous red grape. There is no shortage of intensity and sheer personality here. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
