The Wine

Fuoripista narrates an alternative route, a pathway out of the common, a different perception and vision of nature. Fuoripista Pinot Grigio arises from the cooperation of Foradori and Marco Devigili, biodynamic winegrower of the Campo Rotaliano, and expresses the essence of a variety widely diffused in Trentino. More than 8 months of skin contact in amphorae (tinaja from Villarobledo, Spain) liberates and emphasizes the delicate character of this Pinot Grigio. Azienda Agricola Foradori

On the 2022 “First day anger, second day relief, third day almost satisfaction. Remember easy and orgasmic Fuoripista? Not this year. Another wine that moved to the East, Friuli this time. Or maybe Mexico. The colour gives up right away that we are dealing with more maturity. The nose is decadent and at times a bit tired, but somehow keeps you smelling. Like a 63 year old Republican with a funny sign at some random rally in Kentucky. Maceration is more evident in the palate while the tannins grab your cheeks from the inside and bully you, like that weekend in Tijuana 30 years ago, that the man can’t let go. Less clarity, more matter, more oil, less verticality, less salt. Maraschino is the word of the year, here. Your new cocktail menu: Martini, Negroni, Old Fashioned and Fuoripista 2022. A wine for good-old, super-rich patriarchs.”
Theo Zierock, Azienda Agricola Foradori

About the Wine Maker

Based in the picture perfect Trentino town of Mezzolambardo, Elisabetta fashions elegant wines with clear territorial character.  The winery was founded in 1901 with the first vintage produced in 1960 and Elisabetta making her first wine in 1984. Biodynamic conversion started in 2002 and Demeter certification in 2007.  The winery focuses on the traditional Trentino varieties of Teroldego, Nosiola & Manzoni with the former making up the majority of the winery’s production.  The grapes come from two distinct areas within Trentino, firstly, the Campo Rotaliano, a flood plain formed by the confluence of the Noce River into the Adige River surrounded by massive cliffs. The flooding has deposited huge quantities of limestone, granite, porphyry and fine sand, perfect for growing Teroldego.  The second area is the hills east of the town of Trento, located 25 kms south of Mezzolombardo. Here the elevated Fontanasanta (holy water) estate is planted to Nosiola and Incrocio Manzoni on the rich red clay and white limestone soils.  The winemaking philosophy is best summed up by Elisabetta:

‘We do not intervene in the winery; nothing is added, but we guide the wine while paying attention to its needs.  Thus, the wine keeps an expressive spontaneity and bears the personality of its intense and live raw material.   In this way, we seem to bring into the wineglass the fragrance of the flowers from the mountain pastures, the minerality of the surrounding cliffs, the transparency of the mountain skies, the character of the people that live in these alpine valleys.

It is our duty to convey with each bottle the character of the land of Trentino.’ 
Elizabetha Foradori

The wines are naturally fermented and aged in various vessels according to their needs. Stainless steel for freshness, cement for thermal inertia, Spanish clay Tinajas (amphora) for their energy and ability for the wine to reconnect with the earth. The wines are lightly sulphured after the first racking and at most the wine will contain between 30-50 mg/l of
