2013ForadoriMorei2013 Foradori, Morei, Teroldego IGT, Vigneti Delle Dolomiti, Italy.
Fordori’s efforts take Teroldego to another level, especially this beautiful and all natural amphora raised Morei with it’s sublime balance, textural feel and delicate detailing. The 2013 vintage was cooler and a bit lighter/leaner in style than the warmer 2011 and 2012 bottlings, though I think that just makes it that much more elegant and even more compelling, it shows crisp acidity and mineral tones with verve, without weightiness, truly lovely and haunting. The 2013 Morei starts with fresh cherries, minty herbs, saline notes and wild flowers with hints of flint/shale as well as currant leading to a mid palate of dark fruit including plum, blueberry and black raspberry along with truffle, chalky stones, lavender oil and sweet tobacco. The body fills out with air making for some pleasing and stylish experiences in the glass, this is a dark and complex beauty that should develop into a very intriguing Teroldego over the next 3 to 7 years, very impressive again from Foradori, this is without question a must have for her fans!
