Foradori Granato 2011

70.00

Made with Teroldego from three different vineyards of the Campo Rotaliano, this is an especially concentrated and dense vintage. The exquisite bouquet offers aromas of tobacco, dark chocolate, truffle, leather, scorched soil and a whiff of game. Aged and fermented in wood, the savory palate is ripe with blackberry, spiced blueberry, earthy notes of Mediterranean herbs and dark cooking spice. Firm but fine-grained tannins provide support.

This is a beautifully balanced vintage for Granato that is not as ripe as some recent years but possesses just lovely blue and black fruit along with vibrant tangy acidity. Quite full in the middle as always and then kicks in on the finish with notes of dark spices, and grippy minerals. A bit spritzy and tannic. Inky purple.  Medium bodied, with aggressive tannins. Tart cherries on the finish. Harmonious, featuring sculpted tannins tightly knit to the expressive profile of ripe crushed blackberry, fig cake, tea rose and mandarin orange peel.
