Francesco Moser Teroldego 2009

moserteroldego

A straightforward Teroldego with a brisk play of tart fruit, rustic earthiness and cleansing bitterness making it a good choice at the table.

Estate: Francesco Moser is one of the most famous Italian cyclists; he retired from professional cycling in 1987, and passionately took over running his family estate, Maso Villa Warth along with his brother Diego. The estate is an agrotourism destination, offering tours of the vineyards and winery, events and accommodations. The Moser family vineyards consist of 10 hectares of “steep, gravely hillsides at an elevation of 400 meters”.

Philosophy: “To produce wines from the Valley’s unique micro-climates, using the region’s traditional winemaking techniques to craft a good Trentino wine.”

Winemaking: Half of the grapes were fermented in stainless steel, the other half in small oak casks, “ensuring the tannins are more approachable and the components well integrated”.

Tasting Notes: Brick garnet in colour with aromas of cherry and hints of barnyard funk. Earth notes supported red currant and tart cherry, whilst hints of black peppercorn along with dried cherry comprised the respectable finish.
