4 stars "Color: deep; Nose: fragrant; Aromas: black berry; Acidity: lively; Sweetness: dry; Body: full-bodied; Finish: persistent; Overall: bold; 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Inky-purple. Blackberry, s moke, fresh flowers and mountain herbs on the captivating nose. Fresh and juicy on entry, then rich and pure in the middle. Blueberry and blackberry flavors linger nicely through the very long, clean finish, which features a saline quality. One of the best young entry-level teroldegos in memory from Foradori. (4/2012) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2009 Teroldego Rotaliano is a big wine with huge fruit that largely masks much of the wildness that is typically present in this indigenous red grape. There is no shortage of intensity and sheer personality here. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. I have included notes on these new releases from Elisabetta Foradori, even though she is located in Trentino rather than Alto Adige. 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. Over the last few years Foradori has begun using terra cotta amphoras for a number of her wines...Readers should do whatever they can to taste these magnificent wines. (2/2012) "
