” The 2011 Granato is a pure expression of Teroldego that delivers delicious richness and luscious intensity. The wine flaunts the specific characteristics of this Italian indigenous grape in all its glory. The quality of fruit is dark and beautifully presented with tones of sour cherry, red rose, licorice, oak spice and balsam herb. The fruit is very bright in its present state and should continue to evolve gracefully over the next ten years. The various vineyard sites that source fruit for this wine are panted to 6,000-vines-per-hectare density.
Elisabetta Foradori presents another fantastic set of wines and has continued her pursuit of single-vineyard expressions. The vineyards are located in the Mezzolombardo township of Trentino that is characterized by alluvial soils with veins of slate, limestone and sand. Teroldego vines for the flagship Granato red wine are sourced from the Vignai, Cesura and Regin crus.” – 93 points, Wine Advocate (May 2016)
“Beautifully aromatic and harmonious, featuring sculpted tannins tightly knit to the expressive profile of ripe crushed blackberry, leather, fig cake, tea rose and mandarin orange peel, underscored by rich minerality. Fresh and focused, with a long, spiced finish. Teroldego. Drink now through 2026. 355 cases imported.” – 93 points, AN – Wine Spectator
