Delicious, bright personality — a year ago


Granato Teroldego 2011

More classically styled than the amphora wines, this still has that brambly, savory, leafy character. It’s a bit reminiscent of a great Cabernet Franc - maybe that’s why Foradori is keen on those at Ampeleia — 4 years ago

Unlitro Alicante Blend 2021

Delectable Wine

The 2021 Unlitro, presented in a fun 1-liter bottle, is a very pretty, aromatic red to drink over the next few years. Crushed red berry fruit, mint, cinnamon, dried flowers and orange peel all grace this light to medium-bodied red. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2023)

Dolomiti Teroldego 2015

2020 spring. Brambly, wild, both dark fruited and bright at the same time. Plenty of juicy acidity. Foradori really knows how to make this style of wine - her Ampeleia Cabernet Francs are in a similar vein, but this is cooler and more leafy, whereas those are slightly rounder — 4 years ago


Cabernet Franc 2015

One of the more exciting Cab Francs I've had in a bit. Classic in many ways but showing a textural richness and concentration of fruit, earth, and flowers that is markedly unique. Expressive brambly black berry and raspberry, green tobacco leaf, pencil shaving, menthol, animal, damp earth, shiitake. — 7 years ago

Montefili Rosso Toscana Cabernet Franc Sangiovese 2012

2021/4/29-30 with Nanjing saltwater duck, etc. Normally I don’t go for wines with international varieties from places like Chianti (and Panzano no less), but I came across this without knowing what was in it and had been wanting to try something from Montefili. It was pretty good - and the Cabernet Franc (which might be my favorite of the French varieties in Tuscany due to Ampeleia) hit the spot when I wanted something to go with duck. It had the brambly cassis and green tobacco, with some cherry from the Sangiovese. Was best on day 1 - was a little plain on day 2. — 3 years ago


Ampeleia Maremma Toscana Red Blend

A fantastic Maremma wine year in year out. Mostly Cab Franc providing silkyness and pure red fruit while Sangiovese is responsible for structure. A great buy for 24 Euros. — 7 years ago
