  • Deep red color. Aromas of black fruits, graphite and wood spices. Ripe, well-balanced fruit in the mouth with excellent depth and length and nicely integrated oak and tannins. Very intense and persistent on the palate. This impressive wine reminded of a very good Chateau Haut Brion. Still in sweet spot of drinking maturity.

  • Rubinrød kant, svart kjerne. Parfyrmert, blomster, svarte bær, lakris. Vanvittig syre, men likevel flott balanse. Bra lengde. 1997 Foradori, Granato, Terral dego 91-92 p Dette er dritkult. Fremstår som en ungfole, og nærmer seg pensjonsalderen.

  • Deep purple color with no signs of age in the glass. The nose was rich with dark fruit, plums and dried prunes/raisins especially; with a touch of mint. Very well integrated tannins, moderate acidity and a silky smooth mouth-feel with a long dark fruit finish that revealed tar, mint and spices. This wine is still beautiful and not showing any sign of falling off - mature, yes; but definitely still has a window of excellence ahead for bottles properly stored.

  • Texas Wine School, Luxury Wines of Italy Class. Decanted. Bright, medium (+) to deep ruby with some purple hues. Amazing youthful in appearance, The nose is clean, medium in intensity, with intriguing aromas of red fruit, black fruit, dried, medicinal herbs, some tar and black licorice. The nose is still developing. The palate is dry, with medium (+) acidity, medium alcohol at 13% and medium to medium (+), silky tannins. The palate is consistent with the nose, with predominantly bright pomegranate and cranberry flavors. It has a medium body, medium to medium (+) flavor intensity and length. This is a very well balanced and very well made wine, from the Campo Rotaliano area of northern Trentino. It is showing remarkably little signs of aging and is a real testament to Elisabetta Foradori's wine-making skills.

  • Really incredible purple color. The nose is savory with blue fruits and plums as well as granite notes. Still some itchy tannins on the wine. I loved the wine but by hour three the fruit faded a bit. I think its time to drink.
