Foradori Teroldego Morei 2022

2018年份 RP 94


The results obtained through years of biodynamic farming and observing stability in the vineyard emphasized the character of each plot of land and made us realize that we would need to undertake a separate vinification across two vineyards.
Through the use of amphorae (Tinajas from Villarrobledo, Spain), with their particular shape and the porosity of the clay that they are made of, the winemaking process is undertaken with purity and balance. The process of turning grapes into wine is not effected by outside influences; the amphora acts as a shield, allowing the grapes to progress with only the character of the earth and grape variety as their guidance. Morei means ‘moro’ or ‘dark’ in the Trentino dialect and the grapes cultivated in this vineyard are a firm echo of this. Their roots rest among the pebbles and the sand in the earth carried by the Noce River, cultivating
wines with a texture of minerality and density. Morei Teroldego resumes form and is reborn amplified and transformed.

The 2018 Teroldego Morei (closed in a wax-sealed bottle) is fermented on the skins in amphorae. Fruit comes from the estate’s 2.5-hectare Morei vineyard with alluvial soils and lots of rocks. This is the sister wine to Foradori’s other single-vineyard expression from Sgarzon, and of the two, this one offers a little more heft and power. The wine reveals dark berry and dried cherry aromas, and you do taste the tannic firmness from the skins. That dark fruit cedes to elements of licorice, potting soil and dried rose.
