Morei translates to dark in the local dialect, and the name perfectly reflects the brooding character generated from this vineyard. Whilst the fruit is darker and smells denser the palate still glides, and we get a lovely mineral undertone throughout. Good shit.

Elisabetta Foradori is a trailblazing organic wine grower from the town of Trentino in Mezzolambardo. Her first vintage was in 1984, with her conversion to biodynamics beginning in 2002. By 2007 she was certified and now is considered one of the most forward thinking wine growers in Italy with a huge international profile. Her wines are made with a natural sensibility. The gentle use of clay amphora and inert vessels for ferments and maturation sees her mainline a sense of place from grape to glass.
