Cesconi is quite well known for their production of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Their line up includes some fabulous, more premium blends, which we hope to offer in the future. Moratel is more value driven, and a blend that combines indigenous and international grapes: Lagrien, Teroldedgo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Lagrien is a variety planted in both Alto Adige and Trento. One of its parents is Teroldego and it is often described as a fruity, yet rustic variety. Teraldego is more prominent in Trento and arguably the region’s flagship. Some producers think it is a relative of Syrah. It tends to be dark in colour with expressive notes of dark fruit and moderate tannins. Wines age for 12 months in barrique, are then blended bottled and aged an additional six months. This wine has loads of complexity. While it is a great sipper, it will also work well with a wide range of dishes.
