Morit is a St. Magdalener Classico from Tenute Loacker’s Schwarhof estate in South Tyrol, Italy with a cuvée of 92% Schiava and 8% Lagrein grapes. Follow this link for more information about Tenute Loacker and a summary of wines that I’ve reviewed from them.
I decided to open a bottle from the 2007 vintage. Morit has the DOC Alto Adige wine classification.
The color was a ruby red. Morit aged 10 days in large oak barrels before aging additional six months in stainless steel. The wine has an unusual bouquet which consists of ripe raspberries, a bit of blueberry, a bit of coffee and a hint of spices.
On the palate Loacker’s St. Magdalener Classico is very smooth with mellow tannins. I tasted some red fruits, almonds and smoke. Moreover, the wine has a medium, fresh, finish that makes you want to drink a second glass! On the bottle label the alcohol by volume was listed at 13%.
I ate pork fillet in Mediterranean tomato-wine sauce with baked potatoes and a light salad. Perfect harmony!
A bottle of Morit retails for around 10€ at the Enoteca of Restaurant L’Amar which you might remember from the awesome Azienda Agricola Bianchi wine tasting that I attended.. For that price it’s a great wine and therefore its recommended. I enjoyed everything about this wine and after having drank two flops recently I’m glad that this Loacker wine was far away from being a flop!
