100% Teroldego. Granato is an historic and special wine for Foradori. LIke their entry-level red, it comes from their original Campo Rotaliano vineyard, a 10-hectare expanse of vines on this flat, sunny, well-drained plateau with sandy, Dolomitic limestone soils. And as is true of all Foradori reds, the farming is certified-biodynamic and the winemaking very lighthanded (native-yeast fermentation, minimal sulfur, no racking until bottling, etc). That said, several things make Granato stand out. It is Foradori's only riserva, first bottled by Elisabetta in 1986, and the wine that put Foradori on the international wine map; it comes a 4-hectare parcel of the oldest, pergola-trained vines, planted from 1938 to 1956; and it is the longest-aged and -lived of their wines, traditionally vinified in large oak foudres for 15-18 months and built to last and improve for decades.
