Toreldego Rotaliano from various old vineyards in pergola training in the Campo Rotaliano. The vineyards are characterized by alluvial alluvium with sand and gravel and limestone, granite and porphyry weathered rock. The grapes come from a total of four hectares. They are fermented spontaneously in large open wooden fermenters and aged in wood for 15 months.
Foradoris Granato from 2015 is a wonderfully cool, precise and clear wine with an aromatic profile reminiscent of sloes, plums, sour cherries and dried wood, joined by hints of tobacco, pomegranate and berberize. Even with air and warmth, the wine remains cool and clear, but becomes a bit more floral and airy.
This Granato can be enjoyed right now if you like precise and cool wines. The 2015 Granato is a resting, even withdrawn giant, which one can hardly believe that he was aged to 100 % in wood and not in parts in amphorae, so tight is the wine on the palate, so grippy the tannin. Again, sloes, sour berries and cherries are found in the aromatics. The wine is lively and punchy, but still remains a little under cover. But you know that from the Granatowho just needs time to reveal everything about himself.
