Theo Zierock on the Dolomites, Teroldego, and the Vineyards of Agricola Foradori

Episode #84 of Understanding Wine with Austin Beeman

Agricola Foradori is located in the Piana Rotaliana, a 700 hectare region in Italy surrounded by the Monte di Mezzocorona, the Grandos, and the Adige Valley. The region is known for its unique soil composition, formed by the accumulation of ice and snow during the last ice age and the subsequent melting of a glacier, which washed sand and various types of mountain stones, including dolomite and porphyry, onto the land. The soil in the region varies in its intensity and thickness, with some areas having a higher density of stones and others having a more sandy substrate. This diversity in soil composition results in distinct characteristics in the wines produced by Agricola Foradori, with those grown in denser soil tending to have more density on the grapes and less fruit, but also denser fruit, and those grown in sandy soil having lighter, crunchier, and juicier wines with less density. The acidity and variety of the grapes also play a role in the aging potential of the wines produced by Agricola Foradori.
