The “Morei” comes from vineyards in the municipalities of Campo Rotaliano in the Valle d’Adige. The soils are of alluvial origin with a prevalence of stones. The vineyard, entirely biodynamic, is made up of a plot of 2.5 hectares. The fermentation took place with indigenous yeasts in tinaja (an amphora from Spain) with maceration on the skins for 8 months.

Description

The Foradori winery was founded in 1939 in Mezzolombardo in the province of Trento. Elisabetta Foradori took the reins of the company in 1984 after finishing her studies at the enological school of S. Michele all’Adige. Driven by a strong passion and an unconditional love for their land, Foradori has dedicated itself from the beginning to recovering of one of the oldest native vine varieties of the area, the teroldego, developing ways to enhance the grapes, and giving them the ability to express the territory and its most sincere and genuine character.

The labels “Morei,” “Sgarzon,” “Granato,” “Fontanasanta” and “Fuoripista” are bottles in which the best essence of the Trentino territory is contained. They are daughters of a most profound knowledge thanks to which we have come to grasp all the subtle differences present in nature while preserving the character of the fruit and the identity of the place of origin.

Triple A

“A” for Agricoltori (Farmers) – only those who cultivate the right vineyard can establish a relationship between man and vine and get healthy and ripe grapes exclusively with natural agronomic interventions

“A” for Artigiani (Artisans) – we need “craftsman” methods and skills to implement a winemaking process that does not change the original structure of the grapes

“A” for Artisti (Artists) – only the “artistic” sensibility of a producer, respectful of his work and his ideas, can give life to a great wine where the characters of the territory and of the vine are found
