A stalwart of natural wine in Italy, Elisabetta Foradori's wines are exceptional examples of biodynamic agriculture, native yeast fermentation and low sulfur levels employed with exceptional insight. The cuvee is all Teroldego, an indigenous variety of northern Italy, grown in the highlands of the Dolomites. A spicy, dry red with notes ranging from pine and tar to nutty and tart fruit. Pair with Alpine cheeses and wild fowl if possible.
From the mouth of the importer (Louis/Dressner):
"Elisabetta’s journey in her “wine life” is a familiar tale, but one that we never tire of hearing. The early death of her father unexpectedly hurtled her to the management of the family estate. Though “born among the vines” as she says, she took the helm at first more from a sense of duty than one of passion or vocation. Eventually, however, that passion and vocation came through the work itself, both in the vines and in the cellar. A path of questioning, experiment and intuition (that included everything from biodynamics, to massale selection and the use of amphorae) eventually led her to give up any sense of chasing market trends of the “wine industry” to develop the estate towards the goal of making wines respectful of the soil and the local grapes she wants to honor, and using the techniques she found more interesting, less invasive, and more wine “holistic”."
