A Wine That
represents far more than what's in the bottle. This is a wine of culture and legacy — a wine that (metaphorically) got up on the dining room table and took a stand for Teroldego, having since become one of the world's most hyped red wines.

Where and How?
This is the beating heart of the Foradori estate. When young, Elisabetta had feared that the clonal propagation of Teroldego would be detrimental to the variety, so replanted all of her vineyards to old selections. As such, she has made a global name for the quality of the variety, and is dubbed its saviour.
The grapes are destemmed and fermented naturally in concrete, and aged in a mix of concrete and oak vats. 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.
