"Foradori continues to push the boundaries when it comes to Teroldego, the main indigenous red variety in Trentino. Biodynamic farming and a non-interventionist 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)
"These are wines that communicate such purity and prestige from top to bottom." - Eric Guido (Vinous)
The Manzoni Bianco Fontanasanta is made from 100% Manzoni Bianco (an early-20th-century crossing of Riesling and Pinot Bianco). Foradori organically farms and hand-harvests 3 hectares on clay-limestone soils in the Fontanasanta hills above Trento. Destemmed fruit with 3-4-day skin maceration; aged 8 months in acacia barrel, concrete and clay.
"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 points - James Suckling (19 Apr, 2021)
