Foradori MOREI Teroldego (750ml)
Trentino Alto Adige
Forradori was founded in 1901 Northern Italy’s Alto Adige region. In 1984 Elisabetta Foradori, after having completed her enological studies, completed her first vintage at her family estate. She is widely credited with helping revive the popularity and quality of the Teroldego grape. In 2002 the estate began it’s conversion to biodynamic farming and received Demeter status in 2009. Here sourounded by the Dolomiti mountains Elisabetta cultivates native grapes on both alluvial and calcarous clay soils.
The nose is intense with pronounced red raspberry, dark plums, baking spice, olives and a hint of sweet smoke. The texture is silky smooth, with soft tannins but with lively acidity providing structure and lift. This wine radiates on the palate and lingers pleasantly on the finish.
Foradori’s “Morei” sees eight months of skin-contact in clay vessels followed by three months in oak casks. Inky deep colour with a bright garnet rim.
