Winemaker's Notes

"The 2006 Granato further establishes Foradori as one of Italy's premier winemakers. This is a stunning red from start to finish. The wine bursts onto the palate with a never-ending kaleidoscope of dried roses, spices, pomegranate and raspberries. This medium to full-bodied Granato possesses stunning balance and finessed, elegant tannins that caress the palate with notable elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2021.

Once again I was blown away by Elisabetta Foradori's Granato. Why is she the only producer in Trentino capable of making a wine like this? The region, and Italy, for that matter, could use another 100 producers with this level of ambition."
