2006 Foradori Granato

SKU #1043875

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Granato further establishes Foradori as one of Italy’s premier winemakers. This is a stunning red from start to finish. The wine bursts onto the palate with a never-ending kaleidoscope of dried roses, spices, pomegranate and raspberries. This medium to full-bodied Granato possesses stunning balance and finessed, elegant tannins that caress the palate with notable elegance.Once again I was blown away by Elisabetta Foradori’s Granato. Why is she the only producer in Trentino capable of making a wine like this? The region, and Italy, for that matter, could use another 100 producers with this level of ambition." (10/08) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Shows wonderful aromas of raspberry and cut flowers, with a hint of tar. Full-bodied, with supervelvety tannins, a beautiful core of fruit and a long, long finish. Rich and powerful, yet wonderfully textured." (11/08)

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.
