ANTONIO GALLONI 94+ POINTS - “The 2010 Granato bursts from the glass with expressive red fruit and bright, floral-inflected aromatics, all supported Read More...
by the silkiest of tannins. Sweet, perfumed and impeccable, the 2010 impresses for its balance and structure. Still a bit clenched, the 2010 will surely benefit from another 2-3 years in bottle, but it is already virtually impossible to resist. Elisabetta Foradori aged the 2010 in roughly 2/3rds cask and 1/3rd neutral French oak barrels. Styliscially, the 2010 represents another move in the direction of finesse. It is a remarkable wine in every way.”

We have tremendous respect and admiration for Elisabetta Foradori, a woman of great integrity. Her winemaker father, died of cancer when she was 11 year-old. When she was 19, she took over as winemaker. Before Elisabetta took the helm, the Foradoris had planted vines for bulk wine production, and were very successful. Single-handedly in a 20-year effort, Elisabetta turned the winery around, making the vineyards bio dynamic and reviving a clone of the ancient grape, Teroldego. The Teroldego grape is genetically related to Syrah, and here in the northern Trentino’s mountain valleys sheer limestone cliffs, reaches its zenith in the subzone known as Campo Rotaliano. Elisabetta elevated Teroldego from a bulk wine to one that is found in some of the best wine lists in the world. A single mother of four, Elisabetta’s tireless work made her become one of Italy’s most influential winemakers: a woman who put Trentino wines on the map, and has become one of the country’s leading advocates for organic wine viticulture.

A few of our Hi-Time Wine Staff had the chance to meet Elisabetta at a trade tasting last year, and we were taken by her grace and elegance. Her wines are not that much different than her persona: strong yet elegant, joyful yet serious, easy-drinking yet fascinating. Her entry-level wine, the Teroldego is a dark, earthy wine with black and red fruits, serious yet light-footed. Her wine Sgarzon, is a deep red with an alpine freshness, layers of flowers, dark cherries, spice and dark minerality presented subtly and in precise detail. Her flagship wine, Granato, is a deep, dark concentrated wine made only from her best grapes. Granato is racy and silky with dark fruits, dark chocolate and some nuts with a long and beautiful finish. Teroldego may not have the same international cachet as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, but the Foradori wines are stunning.

Antonio Galloni of his publication “Vinous” writes of Elisabetta Foradori: “I was deeply struck with the wines I tasted at Foradori a few months ago. The winery is stripped down to the bare essentials, with terra cotta amphoras playing a greater role than in the past. Elisabetta Foradori is able to coax remarkable finesse from her Teroldego, the red grape that is native to this part of Trentino. The entry-level Foradori (previously labeled Teroldego Rotaliano) is fabulous and a great introduction to the estate... Readers should do whatever they can to check out these magnificent wines.”

for the small town of Terlano. The Terlaner is a true synthesis of flavors where it is virtually impossible to pick out the grape varieties one by one. Tangerine, lime-zest, and fragrant blossom aromas make for an enticing nose. The palate is both luxuriously silky with pear fruit, but also lively and firm.
TERRE DI SAN LEONARDO 09

(Bordeaux-style blend), TRENTINO, ITALY - The history of the San Leonardo estate weaves across the centuries with tales of courtly marriages, knights and noble lords, medieval warfare, Read More...
monastic seclusion, trade in exotic silks and more. In AD 588 the Principessa Teodolinda, daughter of the King of Bavaria married Autari, King of the Lombards within the walls of the property-- one of many such stories. Winemaking has always been part of San Leonardo from the beginning, but Bordeaux-style wines based on Cabernet Sauvignon have been the obsession of owner Marchese Carlo Geurrieri Gonzaga for the last fifty years. Is there such a thing as an “old-school” Bordeaux-blend from the Italian Alps? The estate’s flagship, simply called San Leonardo, has made a legendary name for itself in Italy, winning the prestigious Tre Bicchieri award 15 times, nearly every year it has been produced.

The lovely 2009 Terre di San Leonardo that we are offering here is a mirror image of that great wine, made in the tradition of Bordeaux’s second wines. Look for blueberry and black cherry fruit blending smoothly with notes of cedar, forest floor, wild herbs and dried violet. This is not a wine based on extract or power; the fruit retains a savory quality and never turns jammy or liqueur-like. Fans of this great Italian estate will be excited to know that all of the best fruit from 2009 is blended into the 2009 Terre di San Leonardo—there is no flagship 2009 San Leonardo, only a better-than-ever 2nd wine.

Brilliant ruby red, with attractive depth and decent length. The aromas are alcohol and fruit-rich when the wine is young, later mellowing with bottle age into ripe plum fruit layered over a faintly grassy background note. Dry, soft and well-balanced on the palate, it reveals a pleasing bitterish twist in the finish. Good aromatic length.
