2007 Foradori "Granato" Vigneti delle Dolomiti

SKU #1070697 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Ripe, silky tannins caress the palate as the 2007 Granato emerges from the glass. Crushed, flowers, raspberries and spices meld together beautifully in this mid-weight, gracious Granato. Today the aromas and flavors are quite primary, but the wine should harmonize to a greater extent with another year or two in bottle. Subtle notes of oak linger on the elegant, polished finish. This is another superb Granato from Elisabetta Foradori. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. Elisabetta Foradori continues to set a very high bar in Trentino and the rest of Italy, for that matter. The reds are the strengths among these new releases. (AG)  (2/2011)

92 points James Suckling

 This is one of northeastern Italy's most stylish reds. Love the dark and exciting color with blueberries and minerals. Full and tangy, with loads of fruit. Citrusy on the finish. Drink now, but will improve with age. Made from organically grown grapes.  (2/2011)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Dense tannins frame this inky red, which displays velvety flavors of chocolate shavings, kirsch, black licorice and espresso, with a fresh note of forest floor or rich earth. Complex and powerful, but shows a sense of style and overall grace. Teroldego. Best from 2014 through 2027 (AN)  (10/2011)

Wine & Spirits

 This teroldego's deep purple color glows at the edge of the glass. It's juicy with rose petal scents, the fruit still blunt and jammy. Simple for now, there's a hint of minerality in the tannin that suggests it may gain complexity with age.  (8/2011)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
