Staff Pick Notes

This grape variety—Teroldego—may be a tongue-twisting mouthful, but I implore you to give both the pronunciation and the wine a try. An ancient grape variety grown in the mountainous alpine region of Trentino Alto-Adige, this deep-colored wine is brimming with rustic flavors of wild blackberries. The grapes are grown in the high altitudes of the Dolomites, which lends a fresh, lively note to the palate. Winemaker Elisabetta Foradori has been a trendsetter in the region, helping to turn the reputation of Teroldego from a mass-produced wine into one of complexity and quality. After taking over her family's vineyard in 1984, Elisabetta slowly introduced biodynamic practices, which led to healthier, finer grapes, and ultimately a new standard for Teroldego. Saluti!
