"This wine will not be produced in 2017. The 2016 Teroldego Foradori (with 50,000 bottles made) shows some of the youth of the fruit with primary aromas of black fruit and blackberry preserves. Teroldego shares some characteristics that are similar to Syrah in terms of the rich fruit density and darkness. It also exhibits soft tannins and full-bodied appeal. Although partial whole-cluster fermentation is sometimes employed with this wine, it was not used in this vintage. Drink: 2018-2024. 90 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."
