  • Campo Rotaliano is a very specific area in the Adige valley - a sort of depression surrounded by mountains. This wine is a great introduction to Teroldego, a native Veneto grape marked by its floral, spicy, mineral character. It will pair beautifully with white meat.

    Elisabetta Foradori belongs to the new generation of Italian winegrowers who have chosen to embrace environmentally friendly practices on their land. When her father passed away in 1984, Elisabetta Foradori, who was just 20 years old, took over the domaine. She raised the profile of Teroldego, the major black grape variety in the region. Disillusioned with the local emphasis on producing high volumes, she adopted biodynamic management practices in 2002, achieving Demeter certification in 2009, to restore a certain purity to her wines. Lastly, Elisabetta Foradori has recently attempted to enhance the reputation of another indigenous wine which had sunk into oblivion – Nosiola. As part of her ongoing quest to develop new identities for her wine, she even vinifies some of her cuvées in 400-litre terracotta amphorae.

Tasting notes - Extract
"Biodynamic. 9 months in big oak. Deep grenadine colour. Smoky and peppery with a slight creaminess. Aromas and flavours of elderberry and little wild dark berries. Dry tannins but they are more thickly textured (by the oak, I think) than on the Morei and Sgarzon. More open and less austere than the amphora wines. Finishes smoky, dry and darkly refined.", Julia Harding MW from Jancis Robinson's team
