Born in Gries am Brenner, Tyrol, Moretti is the eldest of four brothers. His brothers are named Thomas, Christoph and Gregor. Since 1997 he has been married to Julia Moretti (née Wilhem), an oboist. They have three children, Antonia (born August 1998), Lenz Valentino (born February 2000) and Rosa Cäcilia (born February 2011).
