Antonio Galloni awards vintage 2011 Teroldego

Elisabetta Foradori's wines remain compelling. The whites both see a short period of contact on the skins, a relatively recent development here. This year I was especially struck by the 2011 Teroldego, a wine that delivers superb quality for the money. Both of Foradori's single-vineyard Teroldegos are worthy follow ups to the 2010s. Overall, the 2011 reds are bulit on volume and texture, never a bad thing with Teroldego, which can at times be excessively gamy. The two single-vineyard Teroldegos spend eight months in terra cotta amphora, which seems to allow for magnificent purity and expression of fruit. Elisabetta Foradori has made compelling wines for some time, but she never seems to tire in her relentless pursuit of excellence.

2011 Morei Teroldego
It's fascinating to taste the 2011 Teroldego Morei next to the Sgarzon. Here the flavors are more intensely savory and mineral-driven. This parcel is planted on an old river bed rich in rocks and sand, a terroir that gives the wine much of its distinct personality. The Morei shows a bit less opulence than the Sgarzon, but also more length and tension. Pomegranate, plum, sage, smoke, violets and graphite add nuance on the brilliant finish.

2011 Sgarzon Teroldego
Raspberry jam, black cherry compote, smoke, incense, blood orange and game flow across the palate in Foradori's 2011 Teroldego Sgarzon. A rich, sumptuous wine, the Sgarzon impresses for its pure volume and resonance. The 2011 has more than enough density to support at least a handful of years of aging. What a gorgeous wine this is. 2014 - 2021

2011 Foradori Teroldego
The 2011 Foradori (Teroldego) is drop-dead gorgeous. Silky, layered and polished, the 2011 impresses for its raciness and textured, inviting personality. This indigenous red grape can veer towards the gamy side of things, but Foradori's Teroldego is all about purity of fruit laced with floral and spice notes throughout. This is a fabulous vintage for the Teroldego.

2011 Nosiola Fontanasanta
Foradori's 2011 Nosiola Fontanasanta is beautiful, expressive and resonant. Dried herbs and flowers, mint, white peaches and subtle hints of earthiness all flesh out in an inviting, layered wine full of personality and class. Elisabetta Foradori elevated Teroldego to new heights years ago. She has done the same with Nosiola, a local white variety that has rarely, if ever, been this distinguished. The Nosiola was fermented and aged in terra cotta amphora.

2011 Manzoni Bianco Fontanasanta
The 2011 Manzoni Bianco Fontanasanta is becoming more and more elegant with time. Lemon oil, white flowers, almonds, smoke and earthy notes meld together in an inviting white loaded with texture. The aromatics are a bit quirky, but texturally the wine is brilliant. Some of the wine's structural elements are reminiscent of a red wine. The 2011 was fermented in cement and spent 12 months in cask.
Drinking window: 2014 - 2018
