Conero Riserva "Dorico"

Moroder_Dorico_label.jpgWinery: Moroder
Montacuto, Italy
Appellation: Rosso Conero Riserva
Designation: DOCG

In a few words: Balance and harmony prevail.

Site: Grown organically in the winery’s estate vineyards, selected from the best lots of hand-harvested grapes in a second pass-through (about 3 weeks after first picking).

Grapes: 100% Montepulciano

Fermentation and Aging: After an extended maceration, the wine is aged for 24 months in 1/3 new French barriques.

Notes: The deep and impenetrable red color is framed by bright tinges typical of Montepulciano. Leather, smoke and truffle on the nose. Hefty and complex and structured in the mouth, plenty of dark fruits and with perfect tannins. This is a wine for the top-courses of Italian cuisine, made of roasted red-meat or full of aromas like braised meat. Excellent with wild game and well-aged cheese.

First vintage of Dorico was 1987, first Tre Bicchieri was 1988.
