Foradori, Teroldego, Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT, Italy 2019
Elisabetta Foradori is one of Italy's classiest winemakers, known for championing the Teroldego grape variety, one of the country’s oldest grapes. The least Syrah-like of Foradori’s Teroldego (the grape is Syrah’s genetic uncle), the Foradori suggests plums, red berries and freshly baked bread on the nose, with a quenching and vivid display on the palate. This is the simplest of Foradori’s wines, but perhaps its most versatile at the table. Dark and spicy, brimming with bright fruits and hints of black pepper and herbs.
