Lezer Foradori Trentino Alto Adige
Elisabetta Foradori is bringing the Teroldego grape back from the brink! This is a juicy, light, red loaded with both minerals and fruit, and a clean finish. Unpretentious, but with a degree of sophistication and nuance. Great when served lightly chilled.
The origins of this wine come from a devastating hail that destroyed 40% of her harvest from the 2017 vintage. She didn't accept defeat, and instead started around 20 different experiments from the home vineyards, of which three quarters went into the final blend. Some went into amphorae, some into oak, some into steel, some into cement, some with the floating cap method and others with direct press. It turned out so well, she's endeavoured to recreate a similar palate each following year – hail or no hail.
Elisabetta Foradori has become one of Italy’s superstar winemakers. All the Foradori vineyards lie in the side valley of Campo Rotaliano, and it is from these beautiful vineyards that Elisabetta Foradori is quietly producing some of Italy’s most complex, deep and compelling wines. She converted to biodynamics in 2000 and gradually changed her winemaking to a more minimalist, “natural” approach.
