This wine is made from Moscato Giallo grapes grown on the terraces around the village of Mori. At harvesting time, the grapes are put into small crates and left to dry in well-ventilated and dry places until December when the right amount of concentration is usually reached. After very slow fermentation, the wine, which maintains its natural residual sugar content, is placed in small oak barrels to mature for about 6 months. Although this wine is ideal for long periods of ageing in bottles, we recommend drinking it when it is relatively young, about 2 to 3 years old, in order to appreciate its fruity sensations and fleshiness that are reminiscent of the grapes it comes from. It is a classic dessert wine, however, due to its concentration it is also an ideal accompaniment to mature cheeses and mostarde (candied fruit in a mustard-flavoured syrup). Alcohol content: 13%
Inspired by the figure of the Vicar when the “Quattro Vicariati” (Four Vicariates) were established, Cantina Mori Colli Zugna offers a wine that comes from a harmonious winemaking process using selected Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. VICARIUS, as the wine is called, is a full-bodied Trentino Rosso wine aged in barriques. It has a strong and generous character just like one of the first vicars in the second half of the 15th century, as recounted in the chronicles. During the rule of the Venetian Republic, Thomaso di Ser Nicolò governed the vicariates in “bona fide et sine fraude”, remaining loyal to his lord, and administering them until 1468. Such aspiration of good governance and autonomy continuously characterised the history of the community of Lagarina. Vicarius is a wine that lives up to expectations. Each glass tells the story of the land and its people. This bright red wine has the flavour of the Vallagarina, which time skilfully refines.
