The outstanding work of Elisabetta Foradori and Rainer Zierock was decisive for the reputation of the Teroldego grape variety. Today, their children Emilio, Theo and Myrtha Zierock follow in their footsteps and continue to run the winery in the fourth generation. Emilio manages the wine production, while Theo oversees the winery's business and trade from Naples. Myrtha, the gardener, takes care of the cultivation and the gradual expansion of the Foradori farm.

Teroldego grows in the Campo Rotaliano, a defined geographical area in the recess of the Adige Valley, wedged between the mountains. Its origins are linked to the Noce River, which for centuries has carried limestone, granite and porphyritic debris. The grapes from these microterroirs of predominantly sandy soils are brought together to produce Foradori Teroldego. Fermented spontaneously in cement tanks followed by 12 months of ageing in cement and barrel.

Color

Purple red with violet reflections and dark core.

Nose

The 2019 Teroldego gives the best testimony of what the grape variety is ready to give when treated appropriately. Pickled dark cherries and plums outline the nose until distinctive floral notes of violet lilac or hollyhock appear. A little dark chocolate and apricot kernels mingle with the finely spicy notes of light tobacco and cubeb pepper.

Mouth

Carried by the vibrant acidity as a leitmotif, it flows straightforwardly with stoic flow across the tippler's palate, flanked by ripe, contouring tannins. Meanwhile, the fruit serves as youthful bonus material, always adorning it juicily and joyfully. However, the Teroldego reaches its zenith with advancing bottle maturity. A supposedly "small" wine with great fun factor and ageing potential.
