Where and How?
This is biodynamically farmed Manzoni Bianco, a natural cross between Riesling and Pinot Blanc.
The wine ferments on the skins in cement tanks, after which it is aged for 12 months in acacia casks. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The Winemaker: Foradori
Elisabetta Foradori is an institution in herself. A winemaking powerhouse. The OG keeper of the Teroldego grape, Elisabetta is largely responsible for the preservation and diversification of the variety.
These days, Foradori is a family affair. In recent years, Elisabetta was joined by sons Emilio and Theo (who LITTLEWINE spoke to for this article) and daughter Myrtha. They now help to run the estate and have brought to the table, as Elisabetta did back in 1984, a fresh perspective on biodynamics and permaculture, which enables the winery to keep on evolving—just as it has done since 1934.
