Popped and poured. 100% Teraldego from a 5 acre parcel and aged in amphora. At this stage the 2014 “Sgarzon” pours a nearly opaque, garnet color. Let’s be clear, there’s definitely some VA, but there is some absolutely gorgeous pomegranates, tart dark brambles, earth, and stewed plums too. A very pretty wine that reminds me why I am so smitten by Elizabetta‘s wines. For my palate, this is showing better than it did back in 2017. Very Italian…but with some Burgundian sensibilities. But even that isn’t fair. These wines are singular. — 10 days ago

2020 spring. I think I liked this even more than the 2015. I love Foradori some perhaps I’m biased, but I love this estate - somehow Tuscan and Mediterranean but with a bit more freshness and wildness. — 2 years ago

2020 spring. This was also delicious - to me Teroldego is lot like Cabernet Franc, which makes the latter a natural for Foradori. A little greener and wilder than the Kepos — 2 years ago
Meinklang is one of my favorite producers anywhere and we finally scored most of their lineup for the first time I can remember in Austin. Like Foradori, Meinklang is a picturesque self-sustaining Demeter certified biodynamic and organic farm which happens to make insanely good wines.
This is just about the prettiest shade of Pinot Grigio (aka Grauburgunder) I’ve ever seen.
It’s expertly assembled - sour honeyed tangerine and apricot.
Graupert is slang for a scruffy or wild soul - the Pinot gris is grown untrimmed, left to spread its vines wild.

Like Foradori, Ochippinti is a name I associate with unreckless natural winemaking - as it goes, the families are good friends. I’ve had the stubby Frappato many times - always good, feral, with minerals and tannins at a tiny 11.5% ABV. Simple enough - red berries and the truth. — 3 years ago
