Foradori Granato Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT

Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) The 2010 Granato bursts from the glass with expressive red fruit and bright, floral-inflected aromatics, all supported by the silkiest of tannins. Sweet, perfumed and impeccable, the 2010 impresses for its balance and structure.

Winemaker's Notes

Grapevines and pomegranates have the same origins and are typical of the Mediterranean region. The pomegranate also has the same charm, beauty and intensity of the grape. The name "Granato”, the name of an especially concentrated and dense Teroldego, is dedicated to this ideal blend. The unique elements at the root of this wine are the careful selection of the variety’s best phenotypes, the vineyard’s great biodiversity, the sharp reduction of the yields, plus the firm belief that Teroldego grapes have a huge qualitative potential, which receives today the appreciation of connoisseurs and consumers all over the world.
