Pinot Grigio IGT Vigneti delle Dolomiti "Fuoripista"

2020
Italy
Trentino

100% Pinot Grigio. "Fuoripista"  or "off-the-path" is sourced from a fellow biodynamic winegrower on the high Campo Rotaliano plateau on which Foradori's estate vines lie. These 2 hectares of vines are traditionally pergola-trained on the typical alluvial soils of the zone and are harvested by hand. The wine is made just like Foradori's Nosiola: the bunches are destemmed and the berries go directly into clay amphorae or tinajas (from J. Padella in Spain), where they ferment spontaneously and macerate for 6-8 months. The wine then spends a brief period in used acacia barrels. It is bottled without fining or filtering and with the wine's only small dose of sulfur. Like all Foradori wines, the wine is classified as IGT Vigneti delle Dolomiti.

"If only I could bottle the bouquet of the 2020 Pinot Grigio Fuoripista in perfume form because it is absolutely irresistible. This is exotic, floral, tropical yet lifted and fresh, with an autumnal spiciness that fills the senses. The 2020 is soft-textured with lifting acidity and a pretty mix of ripe apples laced with ginger. It finishes completely fresh and leaves notes of young peach and mint behind. The Pinot Grigio Fuoripista is so incredibly pretty."
