The range of wines that Elisabetta Foradori has produced over the course of her more than 30 years as a winemaker has occasionally shrunk and then grown again. The only thing that has remained stable in the range is her Teroldego, which has always been a guideline for her changing approach over the years. Initially characterised by a little wood and concentrated power, it became increasingly refined, vital and elegant - as did the other wines of the constantly questioning winemaker. Elisabetta's interpretation of her terroir became more and more precise and her idea of how Teroldego should manifest itself at Campo Rotaliano became clearer and clearer. She gradually managed to capture the cool climate of the surrounding mountains in her wines and give a voice to the barren soils characterised by limestone, sand and granite.
The wooden barrels in which the Foradori Teroldego used to disappear are now reserved for the Granato. For her classic wine, she uses cement containers from the first phase of vinification to bottling, which give the wine sufficient air to breathe but otherwise have no further influence on it.
Strict, cool and lively. Elegant and compact. Characterised by red fruit. The Foradori Teroldego has grip and, thanks to a combination of acidity and substance, exerts a lot of pressure on the palate. Despite its dense texture, it has an animating effect.
