2017 Foradori Granato Teroldego, Vigneti Delle Dolomiti

100% Teroldego. Granato is an historic and special wine for Foradori. It comes from their original Campo Rotaliano estate vineyard on this flat, sunny, well-drained plateau with sandy, stony, Dolomitic limestone soils. And as is true of all Foradori reds, the farming is certified-biodynamic and the winemaking very light-handed. The Grapes are planted on the most gravellly parts of the vineyard; and it is the longest-aged and -lived of their wines. The old and genetically diverse material in the Granato vineyard is the source of all cuttings needed for re-planting vines at Foradori.

The nose is entirely played on notes reminiscent of fruit, from which emerge pleasant sensations of cherry and blackberry, embellished with more woody touches, resulting from aging.
Intense, broad, characterized by a mineral streak and a sip with a fruity aftertaste.
