Wine Spectator 90 points - Spicy, gamy notes of bresaola lead to flavors of black currant, boysenberry and smoky mineral in this firm, finely textured red. Remains lightly juicy through to the finish. Best from 2015 through 2018.—A.N. (Feb 27 2013)

Wine maker notes
The results obtained during years of use of biodynamic preparations and the balance achieved in the vineyards have greatly enhanced the character of the individual vineyards ,so much so as to ”require” a separate vinification of these two vineyards. It is through the use of amphorae (tinaja 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 the sand of the soil carried downstream 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.
Elisabetta Foradori has become one of Italy’s top “superstar” winemakers. Without a doubt, she is Italy’s finest producer of wines made from the Teroldego grape variety, one of the country’s oldest and finest traditional grapes. The Teroldego grape is genetically related to Syrah, and here in the northern Trentino’s mountain valleys it reaches its zenith in the subzone known as Campo Rotaliano. All the Foradori Teroldego vineyards lie in the side valley of Campo Rotaliano, and it is from these beautiful vineyards that Elisabetta Foradori is quietly producing some of Italy’s most complex, deep and compelling red wines. The estates vines are farmed biodynamically, and are all planted in a broad selection of old massale selection plants that she was responsible for isolating and propagating (along with the department of viticulture at the University of Milan). Teroldego may not have the same international cachet as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, but the Foradori wines are stunning...
