I do have a soft spot for the Foradori way. While with her reds I could wax lyrical for a minute, with the whites I typically just like to stay quiet. It keeps the focus…and I get more wine that way;)

1997 Foradori Granato

Name:Granato
Vintage:1997
Type:Red Wine
Varietal:Teroldego
Producer:Foradori

A wonderful clean, fresh, juicy nose. Crushed cherries and blackberry leaves, cedar and blackberries follow, spiced with pepper. Pomegranate and cherries explode in the mouth. The way it ages continues to surprise me. Very slowly and evenly, keeping all the components in check and balanced. A ’97 (t’std in Apr ’13) still has 5 years of aging in it easy. Elisabetta Foradori delivers a wonderful bottle of Granato once again!
