On tasting, you can appreciate the time in barrique, however discrete, together with the full presence of ripe fruit, blackberry and raspberry.

Deep ruby red with tinge of purple, on the nose scents of ripe fruit, mulberry, raspberry and blueberry; spiced note of mint and floral scent of violet.

Full body and important tannins give depth to this wine which is full and round.  Hints of oak from the best French forests, almond and spices.

FOOD MATCH:  Goes well with: braised meats, game and mixed grills

The name derives from the name of the rocky conformations “dihedrals”  in which the overlying  Monte di Mezzocorona is rich.

The cultivation system is the traditional pergola of Trento, however, a short and discreet pruning and a thinning of the bunch of grapes halve the production  which would otherwise flourish.

Diedri is a Teroldego Rotaliano Superiore Riserva aged 12 month in barriques and 6 months in steel containers. Longevity: 8-10 years

Dorigati

The winery is situated in the historical centre of Mezzocorona, right in the heart of the town, between Piazza della Chiesa (Franz Joseph Platz) and Piazza San Gottardo, in a typically rural setting.

Initially, the cellar was located in Piazza della Chiesa, but in 1906 it was moved to via Dante 5, where it is still situated today, a few tens of meters from the former premises.

The buildings date back to three different periods in history. The main block was constructed at the end of 1800, another part in 1906 and the last extension dates back to 1955. 1998 saw the restructuring of the existing winery on the ground floor.

The Dorigati brothers’ vineyards are located in Piana Rotaliana, a cone with fine soil features, ideal for viticulture. Over the centuries, the floods of the small river Noce created parcels of land which contained a good quantity of slime, -rich in minerals- , and an excellent power of drainage, thanks to the presence of cobblestones.  Teroldego Rotaliano DOC, the principal autochthonous vineyard of Trentino, is found in this strip of land. The ideal climatic conditions together with expert viticulture,and the use of the pergola of Trentino, permit  the ageing of high-quality grapes and the production of excellent red wines.

“We firmly believe that the best innovation is the valorisation of the products’ identity respecting the tradition.  We think that the care and the attention to the land are essential because the quality of a single wine originates from the vineyard, respecting the natural time. We strive for the equilibrium between plants and land, wine and man. Wine is the result of a unique synergy between the wine grower and the environment. Every wine is a different path, a story, an evolution, which makes it unique. For over 150 years, making wine means this for us”

The cellar is on three floors, the ground floor adjacent to the inner courtyard and two floors beneath ground level. The premises of the ground floor, thanks to the thick stone walls, have a temperature conducive to preservation of the wine without the use of air conditioners, except for the old barn, where the walls are thinner. The two underground floors also create ideal conditions for the storage of wine, with an almost constant humidity and temperature throughout the year.
