Foradori Teroldego Sgarzon 2010
"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.
Editorial Reviews for Foradori Teroldego Sgarzon
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
