"This wine takes a little while to open, but it exhibits beautiful and radiant intensity once it has had a chance to settle in the glass. This 2017 Teroldego Morei (the grapes are fermented on the skins in amphorae) puts on quite a performance thanks to the sheer exuberance and energy of the bouquet. Black and plummy fruit are followed by spice, peppercorn, dried sage and tangy licorice. You also get softer tones of tilled earth and smoke. Bottle production is 12,000 strong. Drink: 2020-2035. 94 points

The big news at this celebrated estate in Mezzolombardo is that Elisabetta Foradori has handed winemaking responsibilities over to her sons Emilio and Theo Zierock. I tasted these wines with Emilio at the winery. The 2017 vintage was very difficult, with bad weather and hail that destroyed much of the Teroldego harvest. As a result, the 2017 Teroldego Foradori and the 2017 Pinot Grigio Fuoripista were not produced. Because of the reduced harvest yields in 2017, a new wine called Lezèr was born. It is made with Teroldego and sees very short skin maceration times (a mere 48 hours) in order to safeguard the wine's crunchy freshness. The most exciting news from this estate is the launch of two single-vineyard expressions of Teroldego (Sgarzon and Morei) aged in long amphorae called cilindrica."
