Unlitro Alicante Blend 2019

A vivid ruby red with light cherry flecks in the glass. This is certainly a wine for those who like a little bit of funk in their lives. Tons of moist dirt and forest scents initially on the nose. Wonderfully pure fruit is a highlight. Fresh red cherries, cranberry sauce, and wild strawberries. This is indeed a fun, quaffable blend but it is a serious, well made wine. Easy drinking but also with a genuine spine.

Alicante Nero (Grenache), Mourvèdre, and Carignane are the primary components but it’s not fair to lump it in with so many other kitchen sink blends. Medium acidity and terrific balance. Those red fruits shine on the palate with more cranberries and cherries. Smoke, pepper, and oak play a part. Herbs and menthol radiate on the medium long finish that keeps pulling you back in. Perfect for summer but really it’s perfect for anytime.

Foradori

Dolomiti Teroldego 2015

2020 spring. Brambly, wild, both dark fruited and bright at the same time. Plenty of juicy acidity. Foradori really knows how to make this style of wine - her Ampeleia Cabernet Francs are in a similar vein, but this is cooler and more leafy, whereas those are slightly rounder — 8 months ago

Cabernet Franc 2016

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 — 5 months ago

Foradori

Granato Teroldego 2011

More classically styled than the amphora wines, this still has that brambly, savory, leafy character. It’s a bit reminiscent of a great Cabernet Franc - maybe that’s why Foradori is keen on those at Ampeleia — 10 months ago
