Elisabetta Foradori, could be said that has single handedly brought the intriguing Teroldego grape back from the brink. She is also one of the key figureheads of Biodynamic production in the Trentino, deeply attached to her native land and vineyards. 'My memories are here. I’ve known in my mind ever since I was a small girl that the only place I felt well was in nature, maybe because I was born and raised among vineyards.' Today she resides over a beautiful estate of some 26 hectares and produces 160 000 bottles of superb biodynamic wine from various local varieties but her signature wine is Teroldego.

Lezer means "light" in the local dialect and so it is - in the most delicate sense.

Bright ruby red, red berries and an interesting violet note in the nose. On the palate smoke, freshly cut wood and a fine creaminess. A thoroughly fresh red through to the finish, this is particularly suited to the warm season and uncomplicated Mediterranean cuisine when lightly chilled. The aging in different vessels such as amphora, wooden barrel and cement tank gives it an additional charm and an unmistakable profile.
