Teroldego Morei 2011 Igt – Foradori

Teroldego Morei
Teroldego Morei Igt – Foradori

The results obtained during years of use of biodynamic preparations and the balance achieved in the vineyards have greatly enhanced the character of the individual vineyards ,so much so as to “require” a separate vinification of these two vineyards. It is through the use of amphorae (tinaja from Villarobledo, Spain), their shape and the porosity of the clay, that all the phases of the transformation from grape to wine are carried out with purity and balance. This transition is not subject to any interference and thus brings to us only the character of the land and the variety. ‘Morei’ means dark in the dialect of Trentino and the grapes from this vineyard mirror this meaning. Their roots plunge deep in the stones and the sand of the soil carried downstream by the river Noce giving rise to wines with a dense and mineral texture. Thus, Teroldego Morei takes shape and is reborn, amplified and transformed.

  1. A bit of obvious VA on the nose adds lift and brilliance to the aromas of dried herb, raw nut meats, flowers and a bit of sour berry fruit. Riper tannins here than in the Sgarzon make for a somewhat denser and richer expression of Teroldego with bright wild blackberry, blueberry fruit filling the palate supported by lots of acid and soft tannins. There’s a slightly jammy accent to the wild blackberry flavors here even if they are perfectly supported by the acids right through the long finish. This is perhaps easier to understand than the Sgarzon, but perhaps also a bit simplier. 92pts
