Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Elisabetta Foradori has become one of Italy's top "superstar" winemakers. Without a doubt, she is Italy's finest producer of wines made from the Teroldego grape variety, one of the country's oldest and finest traditional grapes. The Teroldego grape is genetically related to Syrah, and here in the northern Trentino's mountain valleys it reaches its zenith in the subzone known as Campo Rotaliano. All the Foradori vineyards lie in the side valley of Campo Rotaliano, and it is from these beautiful vineyards that Elisabetta Foradori is quietly producing some of Italy's most complex, deep and compelling red wines.

Granato is her top of the line bottling; it represents the finest selection of Teroldego in the Foradori holdings, and is built to age gracefully for many years. This bottling is aged in small oak casks for twelve to fifteen months, seventy percent of which are new (though lightly toasted) oak. Granato from Foradori is one of the great, unsung brilliant wines of Italy, and is a perennial winner of Gambero Rosso's coveted Tre Bicchieri award.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe, silky tannins caress the palate as the 2007 Granato emerges from the glass. Crushed, flowers, raspberries and spices meld together beautifully in this mid-weight, gracious Granato. Today the aromas and flavors are quite primary, but the wine should harmonize to a greater extent with another year or two in bottle. Subtle notes of oak linger on the elegant, polished finish. This is another superb Granato from Elisabetta Foradori. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022."
