2007 Foradori "Granato" Vigneti delle Dolomiti
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)
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.
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)
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.
