Foradori, Teroldego Rotaliano 2013, Trentino Alto-Adige, Italy

Country: Italy

Colour / Style: Red

Advent Calendar Day: December 17th

The Foradori family have been linked with some of the most authentic wine production found in Trentino for more than two decades. The family own 80 hectares in an area north of Trento, known as Campo Rotaliano. The gravel soils of this flat valley bottom were formed by the Noce River, which has left deep limestone and granite deposits over the centuries. The Campo is cooled by winds from the surrounding mountains, creating a microclimate for a long ripening season and a late harvest.

This is a firm yet silky red wine, with ripe and delicious dried plum, berry and spice aromas and flavours.
