Foradori (IGT) 2018 (Italy: Trentino/Alto Adige) (ID# 1276)

Name Foradori (IGT) 2018 (ID# 1276)
Varietal Teroldego
Region Italy: Trentino/Alto Adige
Notes "A lovely, harmonious red, creamy and finely knit, layering supple tannins in a cloak of plumped cherry and raspberry fruit, dried thyme, pink grapefruit zest and graphite flavors. This is medium- to full-bodied, with a lasting tang of salty mineral on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2030. 250 cases imported." (Wine Spectator)

Additional Notes

"The Foradori Teroldego always makes for a wonderful introduction to the brand. In fact, it was a vertical tasting of the Teroldego, a wine created in a fresh style from younger vines, yet still noble and age-worthy, that first won my heart - not the top-shelf Granato. The 2018 is no different. Here I’m finding a display of wild berry, fresh peppery herbs, violets, and crushed stone. It’s silky in texture, complemented by cool-toned red fruits and minerals, with just a hint of round tannin that provides grip. Inner florals resonate, while residual acids pinch at the taste buds. This is perfectly balanced, wonderfully pleasing today yet able to mature over the medium term in a cold cellar." (Vinous)
