Teroldego is a red Italian grape variety grown primarily in the northeastern region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, Italy. Some say Teroldego may take its name from its traditional method of cultivation, trained on a system of “tirelle”. The first written document in which Teroldego is mentioned by name dates back to 1383 in the fields between Trento and Povo where a barrel of vinum teroldegum was used to pay the interest on a loan. Regardless, Teroldego produces deeply pigmented red wines with an intensely fruity character that is soft and needs very little aging. 

There is just one DOC for varietal Teroldego wines: Teroldego Rotaliano. The Campo Rotaliano is a sandy, gravelly plain historically regarded as the best site for the variety. As such, it is one of the few site – and variety – specific appellations in Italy.

Azienda Agricola Foradori has been family-owned and operated since 1901. In 1985, at the age of 19, Elisabetta took over her father’s estate in the Campo Rotaliano zone of Trentino in the foothills of the Dolomites. Utilizing seleccion massalle from her pergola trained vines, she re-planted and diligently retrained her vineyards, and introduced barriques to the aging regimen. By 1999, she was being referred to as the ‘undisputed top producer of Teroldego’ receiving numerous accolades.
