The soil here is very stony, therefore relatively warm, dense, dark, mineral, reflecting the wine of the same name, Morei Teroldego. The fruit blossoms, becomes juicy and dense, seems riper and darker than on the nose and has a sweet fruit core.

Information

Teroldego from the Morei site in Campo Rotaliano, Mezzolombardo, grown on 2.5 hectares of alluvial alluvium. The Morei site is protected from cold north winds by nearby, abruptly rising rock faces. The rock stores heat during the day, which radiates onto the vineyard at night. The soil here is very stony, therefore relatively warm, dense, dark, mineral, and like the wine of the same name, the Morei Teroldego, reflects him. The wine was aged for eight months on the skins in tinajas, Spanish 420-litre cellar amphorae. In the spring of 2018, the wine was drawn off into concrete tanks, where it harmonized over the summer. One third of the 2016 Morei was then filled into cilindricas. These are smaller cylindrical amphorae that hold 330 litres. The wine matured there for another year. It is, so to speak, the reserva among the amphora wines.

Color

Purple with purple reflections

Nose

From the pair of brothers Morei and Sgarzon is the Morei always the darker and also darker fruity wine, as its name already says. In the fragrance the 2016 Morei Cilindrica a little more closed and more acidic than the current 2017s and also as the 2015 Morei, which has been on the bottle for a while. Pomegranate juice meets cranberries, sour cherries and red currants. Finally, a little elderberry juice mixes in, an herbal spice and a note of burnt clay and chalky earth.

Palate

On the palate the Morei's Cilindrica warmer. The fruit blossoms, becomes juicy and dense, seems riper and darker than on the nose and has a sweet fruit core. The tannin is polished and round, the acidity offers tension and vibrancy, but is riper and more restrained than the nose suggested. One should give the wine time and air before enjoying it.
