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.
