Foradori Teroldego Sgarzon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Sgarzo” means vine shoot in the Campo Rotaliano. The vines that grow in the Sgarzon vineyard are particularly vital and benefit from the cooler climate that distinguishes this site. Teroldego’s character changes, it is enriched with an unusual freshness. The eight months spent on the skins in an amphora (tinaja from Villarobledo, Spain), retain and amplify its distinctiveness. Along with the Morei vineyard, Sgarzon expresses fully the great variability of this variety.

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

Rather rich and spicy on the nose with licorice, tar, hot iron, and floral nuances framing tobacco tinged blackberry and black cherry fruit that has a edge of black olive brine, sage, and prosciutto savoriness to it. Medium bodied, angular and with bright acidity on the palate, this is transparent and earthy on the palate with vividly bright fruit that has almost a gamy edge to it then the finish explodes with vibrant red tinged fruit. There are some dry tannins here, offering fine framing for the ample fruit, and this shows really fine persistence and is absolutely delicious with layers of flavor and that slightly angular nervous texture. With enough dry extract to promise a silkier future. An awesome expression of Teroldego. 93pts

Teroldego is a fascinating grape combining seemingly disparate elements of density with alpine freshness, berry fruit and florality with savory notes of leaves, underbrush, tar and sandalwood.
