Its been way too long since having this in my glass. Reductive at first, but plenty if aeration won the good fight, its black cherry and currant notes meld well with its peppery and granitic bite. Such a singular varietal especially in the hands of the master. Perhaps this had a touch more tension than I remember, this was quite wound up and almost had a serious side than previous experiences.

Lots of cranberry and cherry with brisk acidity and a fair amount of tannin. Better with some air, where the brambly fruit softens. For €17 this is great stuff.

I’ve had probably 10-12 bottles of this wine and while it’s always been very good, this 2016 might be the best of the bunch. Juicy and refreshing, yet structured and serious. Fruit and earth in perfect balance.

This was wonderful. Bright purple hues in the glass and a tightness on the first sip that told me we had to decant it. Did so for 24 hours and could have used some more.

Highly acidic, rich tannins, but well balanced with dark fruits and a little sourness. This is a complicated guy. I could use a few more glasses and another day of decanting to pull it apart.

Popped and poured; better on Day 2. Black berries, blueberries and curaçao. A touch astringent on the nose. Dark zippy fruits on the palate with a bit of citrus. Long, delicate finish. Great with food. I would decant before drinking or hold in the cellar for a few years.

Very earthy and a bit astringent. Would love to see how it shows after being open for a day.

Been a few years since I’ve tried this wine and I was very impressed. Incredible QPR.

Elisabetta Foradori is on a very short list of natural winemakers who have a history of what I’d call dedicated unrecklessness. It isn’t enough to make wine without anything added or taken away. The best natural winemakers make calculated decisions. And she does with her beloved Teraldego- what a grape!

It’s elegant like Pinot but meatier. Pillow plush. There are dark berries, nothing eccentric. Simply restrained, deliberate, conscious, winemaking.

This bottle was not as good as the last few 2015s I’ve had. A tad bit “off” but still solid. Missing that focus and clarity I’m used to seeing in Foradori’s wines.
