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.
The Manzoni Bianco “Fontanasanta” by Foradori born from the union of Riesling and Pinot Bianco and offers immediately enjoyable and intriguing notes of fruit, where features peach, pear, spices, flowers, honey and caramel delicate. We are facing with a wine that shows itself in all its uniqueness and its distinctive personality that is born by the inspiration and experience of Elisabetta Foradori, one of the most important and special women wine that has established itself in the Italian wine scene with great authority, giving luster to the vines from Trentino less known as Teroldego, Nosiola or, as in this case, the Manzoni Bianco. Elisabetta betting everything on the potential of the area, on the characteristics of the terroir, giving us such great wines, territorial, perfect expression of the place. We are in the vineyard Fontanasanta, east of Trento, in an agricultural landscape that perfectly balances the urbanization with nature; here the soils are rich in clay, clay, limestone. A perfect terrain to best express two vines from the roots so deeply linked to this territory.
“Maybe the greatest natural white wine I have ever tasted. Complex and strikingly original lemon-zest, smoke and dried-chamomile aromas pour from the glass. Then comes the concentrated but very refined palate,followed by a super-long finish that’s a cascading waterfall of wet-stone minerality. Just doesn’t want to stop! From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold.” 98/100 JamesSuckling.com
