Description

The winery is situated in the middle of several acres of vineyards Vittorio Foradori purchased in 1929, in the town of Mezzolombardo. Foradori does not use synthetic chemicals, pesticides or fertilizers. They are certified by ICEA and Demeter since 2009. They harvest the grapes from vineyards covering 26 hectares – 80% of Teroldego, 15% of Manzoni Bianco and 5% of Nosiola – to produce an average of 160,000 bottles per year: 90,000 of Foradori, 20,000 of Granato, 20,000 of Fontanasanta Manzoni Bianco, 8,000 of Fontanasanta Nosiola and 10,000 for each of the old vineyards of Teroldego Sgarzon and Morei.

Tasting Notes

Closed with a yellow wax capsule, the 2018 Nosiola Fontanasanta shows a light and luminous golden-straw color. Made with extended skin contact in amphorae, the wine presents apricot, honey, white grape skin and bitter almond. Those macerated flavors appear with greater intensity to the palate where the wine boasts the slight bite or crunch of its skin tannins. The wine’s nutty, slightly bitter finish is followed by subtle stone fruit, pomelo and apricot. [93 Points, Monica Larner – February 2021, robertparker.com]
