This biodynamically-produced wine is made from teroldego - an ancient native red grape of Italy. This 2010 version comes across as richer in fruit and more modern than the '09 version, with smells of bright dark berries and spice - not unlike shiraz - with touchs of savouriness and smoky oak. The palate is medium-bodied and almost sweetly-fruited, with red and dark berries at its heart, some fine but tight tannins, poised acidity, and a an elegant, fruity finish. This will kick on for a couple more years, but would be the bomb with some BBQ beef ribs tonight.
Reviews and Accolades
"Elisabetta Foradori is one of my favourite producers for many reasons, including her attention to detail in the vineyards and winemaking using biodynamic principles, her work ethic and her love of teroldego, an ancient red from the Trentino region. I love the acid-tannin balance with this variety and the 2010 has a core of ripe red fruit mixed with spice, florals and smoky nuances. It's medium-bodied, with those very precise fine tannins adding to the shape and sensation of the wine before a fresh, long finish."
