"Foradori continues to push the boundaries when it comes to Teroldego, the main indigenous red variety in Trentino. Biodynamic farming and a non-interventionalist approach to winemaking are at the core of Foradori’s philosophy...Readers should do whatever they can to taste these magnificent wines." - Antonio Galloni (Vinous)

The Granato sees partial stem inclusion during fermentation (for a third of the total mass). Fermentation occurs in oak with skin contact that lasts 20 days. After that, it goes into oak (neutral) for 15 months. Only about 20,000 bottles are made. It is Foradori's flagship wine

"This is really exotic with crushed berry, blueberry, blackberry, violet and sandalwood. It’s full-bodied and very layered with ultra fine tannins that are interspersed with beautiful, ripe fruit. The finish shows cherry, tea, bark and dried flowers. It’s very long and precise at the end. This needs at least four or five years to show what it has, but so beautiful already to taste. Try after 2024." 97 points - James Suckling (24 Nov, 2020)
