Dark currant and raspberry and some briar patch elements. Tannins resolved and quite pleasant and silky. This seems the right age for this as an entry-level wine. I fear the fruit will start to fade soon, but this is a very well-made wine just not quite as complex as the Granato.
Tasted at Wine Advocat event - A matter of taste. Grape variety Teroldego (you are never finished discovering I guess). Dark ruby. Expressive nose of red and black fruit with some spices, tar and stones. Really intense on the palate with good mid mouth feel. Aromatically very complex and well balanced. What a wine for this price!
Dark violet colour. Pretty fragrant mineral nose with aromas of blackberries and something that can be described as indian gooseberry sauce, or so. At this point, wine showed one of the driest tannins ever I've experimented, quite woody, acidic to the bone. That's not a real pleasure to be drink this, I promise. A fresh bolognese pasta tried to pair it. Gonna give time to the rest of my half case.
De color violeta oscuro. Nariz mineral bastante fragante con aromas a frutillos negros y a algo que puede ser descrito como salsa de grosella india, o así. En este momento, el vino mostró unos de los taninos más secos que nunca haya experimentado, bastante amaderado, ácido hasta la médula. No es un placer beber esto, lo prometo. Una pasta fresca a la boloñesa trató de acompañarlo. Voy a darle tiempo al resto de mi media caja.
Most similar to a Bandol on the lighter side. Powerful acidity really the lifts the fruit here which was probably lacking a bit. The nose showed more complexity than the palate. Nice wine for the money when it's all said and done though.
Shiny red/purple, slowly opening nose with blackberries, earthy tones and a touch of vanilla. Significant tannins and adequate fruit acid. Blackberries, sweet rhubarb, herbs and notes of celery and pomegranate. Nice, long aftertaste. Even though it is not mature, this wine shows its great potential. Elisabetta Foradori simply never produces a bad wine and this one is not an exception! Unfortunately I have to wait a few years with the Granato of the same vintage...
A really intriguing combination of the full, rich and opulent, as well as freshness and elegance. There is chocolate, liquorice and ripe fruits on one hand, but fresh red berries, purity and acidity on the other. Despite these contradictions, there is a great balance. Drinking perfectly right now.
Tout d'abord je dois l'avouer,je ne m'attendais pas a quelque chose d'aussi bien ! Rouge Pourpre,belles larmes le long du verre,au nez c'est très fruités avec la cerise en avant plan,en bouche la cerise est présente mais c'est plus sous la forme de cerise chocolat,un petit coté boisé est aussi présent.Un équilibre très respectable avec une belle finale en bouche.Très bon rapport qualité prix.A boire dès maintenant mais un autre 5 ans en cellier pourrait seulement le bonifier.
Drank over three nights. The bitter/sour finish was persistent on all three nights which I personally did not enjoy. I really enjoyed a bottle of teroldego last summer so I might buy one more bottle and let it sit for a couple more years to see how it ages.
Delicious red berry and blackberry palate. Silky mouth feel, medium bodied, finely granulated and moderate intensity tannins - slightly sour on mid-back palate [very Italian, as is its savoury character]. Seems well structured but in a refined, velvet glove sort of way. My first bottle of this variety; I suspect it will gather complexity and extra merit with a few years bottle age.
This was delicious. Wild, vibrant grapeyness with juicy peach-like acidity. Straightforward, but very tasty. I can see the family resemblance to syrah and might have guessed that if I had tasted blind. Good match with stuffed pork loin.
Opaque color that stains the glass. Almost tasted like a barrel sample (St. Damien in particular- could this be fermented in concrete?) where there is a little animal and grapeyness. Everyone was in the Rhone with people calling Syrah and Mourvedre. The wine is very fresh with blackberry and other juicy, wild berries high in acid. A nice tannic wrap in the mouth is strong but not unpleasant. Not bad to open now, but will definitely get better in a couple years.
My first Teroldega. In the glass this looks like a New World - dense deep purple. I might think Syrah on the nose too, with concentrated black raspberry, black cherry, boysenberry fruit tones, with black and green peppercorns, flintstone, sweet hay in a nice complex melange. Medium body with a sweet but somewhat flatter fruit profile than promised by the nose. Seems to show more alcohol than the 13% labeled, not out of hand, but a glycerol-ly mouthfeel. Hint of Campari. Working well with pizza. Structure to me is more from acid than tannin, but neither is strong. It is tasty and satisfying. 88-90
This is a big, spicy but silky wine which is so dense that a decant of several hours is pretty much mandatory. Lots of sleek, dark fruit on the attack with some more savoury liquorice and soya type notes on the midpalate and finish. Savoury, meaty yet plush. Much better than the previous bottle.
Многообещающее, очень гастрономичное вино, с интересными животными тонами в аромате.
Много сладких ягод, гудрон, скотный двор (кожа, молоко, теплое сено, навоз, мокрое дерево, земля). Тело
поначалу легкое, несколько разобранное, танины чуть суховатые. Через полчаса-час вкус раскрывается, становится заметно полнее, появляется яркая ягодная сочность, округлость. Отличный уровень кислотности намекает на хороший потенциал.
Идеальное дополнение к жирному рибай-стейку или баранине гриль. Обещает стать еще лучше в течение ближайших 5 лет.
Very pure and straightforward wine. Dark berries and some pencil in the nose, not very expressive. Elegant, pure with good depth, berries again, black fruit, very well-balanced. No need to rush these wines now as they have certainly more years in them.
Unpleasant nose. Perhaps a little heavy on the sulfur? Deep red fruit with a tannic, hard edge. Definitely has some time on it, but the tannins are harsh enough that I'm skeptical this wine will ever integrate while it has primary, fruit notes. Would decant and/or drink with fatty foods.
The 2009 Foradori Teroldego was a large scaled and fruit concentrated wine with an underlying structure that was barely perceptible beneath the masses of jammy fruit. The nose was big and fruity with raspberry jam, a dusting of cocoa, sweet spices and leather. On the palate it was medium bodied with brisk acidity and intense red berry fruit, which coated the senses. The finish was palate coating and chewy with hints of tannin.
Tried in a restaurant in Rome, at a bit above ideal drinking temperature, as far as I can tell. Developed nicely over the course of the dinner with notes of spices and dark fruit with discreet barrique. Pleasantly mouthfilling, personally I would have liked even more persistence. I'd say this one could still have used a year or two in the cellar.
Aroma of cherries. Nice acid to go with food, in this case pasta with sautéed cherry tomatoes with parsley, anchoives and thin sliced garlic. Opens up after two hours to smooth and silky finish. Nice mineral base. Very nice wine. Look forward to tomorrow after its opened for a bit of time to taste again.
Yep, we adore Elisabetta Foradori's Teroldego, and the '09 is another excellent version. It has a rich smell of cool violets and blueberries, black cherries, pen ink, graphite, liquorice, tobacco and red apples, with just a little hint of good manure in the far background. Tastewise it's fresh, dense, and smooth at the same time. Certainly an abundance of ripe inky extract but not that sweet, nor heavy or the least alcoholic on the finish. It will bring lots of pleasure right away, or with a few years of age.
Not sure what I was expecting but this was very dark ruby red in color. Oddly, the aromas reminded me of Syrah but without any of the olive or leather-like components (which is why I can't quite figure out why I would be reminded of that grape). Tastes lighter than the color would suggest, if that makes any sense. That dark red really had me expecting something super ripe and monolithic but this was finessed. Attractive fruit along with some fennel, I think, and other appealing flavors. First rate and intriguing. A pleasure to drink--so much so that I'll certainly be back for more.
dark red purple. Nose: dark fruit, blueberry. Taste: Reminded me of an old world zinfandel. Black fruit, blueberry, acidity, soft tannins. This needed an hour or so to open. We left a large glass to share the next night and it was still wonderful. Suggest long breathing time or more cellaring time.
