Importer Note:


This wine is made from grapes harvested in various vineyards located on hills in the Valpolicella Classico zone. Different sources and different grape varieties are important to obtain well-balanced wines with the fine structure that only a few single areas in the Classico zone can provide.


Grapes are harvested by hand from the end of September to the beginning of October and are placed on wooden trays for drying. The drying is done for about four months at controlled humidity and temperature. The bunches lose about 30% of their weight during this drying process and sugar concentration reaches 25%.


In January, a roller press gently crushes the grapes and slow fermentation takes place in steel vats at a temperature of 15°C over a period of 40 days. The wine is then put into Slavonian oak barrels and is aged for two years before bottling. They are cellared for a further six months prior to release.


Colour: Strong ruby red


Nose: The bouquet has a subtle vanilla character derived from the oak and aromas of sweet fruits such as currants, blueberries, cherries and spice


Palate: The palate is strong, rounded and warm. It is well balanced with hints of the fruits present in the nose. It has an enjoyable and persistent flavour


Alc/Vol: 16%

Importer Note:

Nicolo Tedeschi founded the Tedeschi estates in 1824 with the operation from grapegrowing to vinification and marketing still in family hands. Since the nineteenth century, Tedeschi have endeavoured to work with nature to create the best wines from indigenous grapes. Today, the company is managed by siblings Riccardo, Sabrina and Antonietta Tedeschi.

The native corvina, corvinone, molinara, dindarella, negrara and rondinella are all grown on the Tedeschi land in the high-trellising systems typical of the Veneto. To make the famously long-lived Amarone, Tedeschi dry their grapes on racks throughout the winter. They have joined with other prominent quality-driven Amarone producers of the Veneto to form the Amarone Families Association, promoting the strict regulation of wines produced within the area under the Amarone umbrella.
