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.
  • Dark red
  • Gamy notes of bresaola lead to flavors of black currant, boysenberry and smoky mineral in this firm, finely textured red.
  • Raspberry jam, flowers and licorice are some of the notes that wrap around the deep, intensely satisfying finish. Remains lightly juicy through to the finish
  • Sausage
  • Cold Cut
  • Duck Ravioli
