no added sulfur

Country: Italy

Type: White Wine

Grape: Nosiola

Nosiola is an ancient Trentino grape variety, once spread throughout the region and whose cultivation has since been restricted to the areas of Valle dei Laghi, Colline di Trento and Pressano. It is a variety that expresses itself intensely in poor soil vineyards, cultivating wines of great delicacy and longevity.

In the past, Nosiola was always vinified on the skins. The possibility of cultivating ‘real’ grapes, rich in energy thanks to the biodynamic practices undertaken in the vineyard here and the extraordinary strength of the amphora, means that Foradori has been able to undertake an ancient style of winemaking. The amphora, with its shape and the poruosness of the clay that it is made from, allows the wine to be in contact with the skins over a longer period of time. This is the true expression of the Nosiola, which is revealed slowly, requiring patience and time.

Organic farming. The bunches are harvested by hand and de-stemmed. The grapes go directly into clay amphorae, where they ferment spontaneously and macerate for 6 to 8 months. The wine then spends a brief period in used acacia barrels. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered, with only a small dose of sulfur.

Medium-bodied and full of expression, with aromas of roasted lemon, flint and fresh almonds.
