Moro is a Bordeaux blend with an Istrian accent that we named after our pet and only donkey to the assistant of Federico Rossi, the founder of the winery. The medium body makes it fluid while extraction prolongs its taste and durability in the mouth.

We recommend red meat from the grill, but also with the pinsu novel will show its breadth and elegance. Serve it at 14-16°C.
Technology and processing
In the winery, the most modern presses and rakes are used so that the harvested grapes start fermentation in the shortest time and without losses. After fermentation, all fresh wines are decanted and vinified in cooled stainless steel barrels. Malvasia Templara and Chardonnay have a longer maceration and mixing on coarse lees. After fermentation, the wine is not decanted immediately, but remains in the same barrel and is mixed with the lees for 6 months. After fermentation, all red wines remain on maceration for approx. 5-6 weeks, under carefully monitored conditions.
This is a sensitive process that most winemakers avoid due to the risk of the wine becoming bitter if it is left in the maceration a little longer than it should be, but if it is carried out very carefully, then the maximum of the specific taste of each variety is obtained. After that, it is pressed and put to ripen in wood. Then all the wines go through a complete automated line for filling, closing and labeling the bottles. In the final production cycle, the wines are aged for a certain period of time in bottles in order to reach optimum quality.
