The Wine

The results obtained during the years of use of biodynamic preparations and the balance achieved in the vineyards have greatly enhanced the character of the individual vineyards, so much as to "require" a separate vinification of two vineyards. It is through the use of amphorae (tinajas 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 sand of the soil carried 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. Azienda Agricola Foradori

 “Morei, the Cardinal, couldn’t be bothered less by this “little” desert-summer (3 months of drought on clay-less soil!). A wine for the Vatican: round, willing to agree and out of touch with reality. Straight from Cotes-du-Rhone to the gates of the Pope’s mansion. The nose talks of moss, humidity, and Syrah. Then it flows like a perfect bowl around the mouth, right before stretching out long like my grandmother’s lasagna. She loves Jesus by the way. Persistent, consistent and spice like ecclesiastic secrets; Morei shines, in a smooth and jazzy way.” 
Theo Zierock, Azienda Agricola Foradori

About the Wine Maker

Based in the picture perfect Trentino town of Mezzolambardo, Elisabetta fashions elegant wines with clear territorial character.  The winery was founded in 1901 with the first vintage produced in 1960 and Elisabetta making her first wine in 1984. Biodynamic conversion started in 2002 and Demeter certification in 2007.  The winery focuses on the traditional Trentino varieties of Teroldego, Nosiola & Manzoni with the former making up the majority of the winery’s production.  The grapes come from two distinct areas within Trentino, firstly, the Campo Rotaliano, a flood plain formed by the confluence of the Noce River into the Adige River surrounded by massive cliffs. The flooding has deposited huge quantities of limestone, granite, porphyry and fine sand, perfect for growing Teroldego.  The second area is the hills east of the town of Trento, located 25 kms south of Mezzolombardo. Here the elevated Fontanasanta (holy water) estate is planted to Nosiola and Incrocio Manzoni on the rich red clay and white limestone soils.  The winemaking philosophy is best summed up by Elisabetta:

‘We do not intervene in the winery; nothing is added, but we guide the wine while paying attention to its needs.  Thus, the wine keeps an expressive spontaneity and bears the personality of its intense and live raw material.   In this way, we seem to bring into the wineglass the fragrance of the flowers from the mountain pastures, the minerality of the surrounding cliffs, the transparency of the mountain skies, the character of the people that live in these alpine valleys.

It is our duty to convey with each bottle the character of the land of Trentino.’ 
Elizabetha Foradori

The wines are naturally fermented and aged in various vessels according to their needs. Stainless steel for freshness, cement for thermal inertia, Spanish clay Tinajas (amphora) for their energy and ability for the wine to reconnect with the earth. The wines are lightly sulphured after the first racking and at most the wine will contain between 30-50 mg/l of
