A beautiful wine. We had with oysters and popcorn shrimp. Deep golden in colour. Reminds me of Huet chenin. Rich ripe red apples. Mineral saline finish.

Foradori Fontanasanta – Nosiola Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT 2014

New year, a new grape (Nosiola)!

Nosiola is an ancient varietal only found in these parts of Trentino. This wine is made from a tiny 2 hectares planted in calcareous clay and farmed biodynamically. Fermentation and aging take place on the skins in clay amphora for a total time of 8 months.

The color is an elegant straw gold color with a green tint. The nose and palate show floral, chiseled rock minerality and the fruit runs in the fresh but subtle spectrum of pear, citrus and kiwi. A gorgeous purity and elegance flows over the palate. There are zero traces upon appearance, aroma or taste that hint to typical amphora (orange) wines.

Best (and only) Nosiola I’ve ever drunk. Crisp, textured, and totally delicious.

Super interesting. Lots of wet stone/minerality and funk on the nose, cool orange and honey on palate. Lots going on!
