VA greets the nose along with rich aromas of dried strawberry, raspberry and cherry backed up with gentle soil tones, a little fig, and underlying violet and white pepper tones A touch of sweetness on entry is quickly washed away by huge, refreshing acids in the mouth. While moderately tannic, the acids lend great clarity and incredible vibrancy to the palate. turning smooth and rich on the midpalate with dried cherry and date flavors that pick up some earthy spice on the long finish which also shows some spicy wood notes. This is deceptively easy to drink, and a refreshing change of pace for Amarone. 92pts

The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella opens to a dark, midnight color and spicy aromas of old spice, Middle Eastern bazaar, waxed furniture, honey-roasted ham, cured meat, caramelized sugar and dark road pavement. The wine shows impossible extraction and concentration that will make it difficult to match foods that don't involve a hearty piece of red meat. Despite the bulk, there is beauty here and the wine will surely appeal to die-hard Amarone enthusiasts. Drink 2015-2025. Deep ruby-red. Spicy aromas of floral red cherry, quinine, pink peppercorn and fresh herbs. Enters richer and deeper than the Nicalo, with ripe red cherry and red berry flavors lifted by aromatic herbs. Finishes clean and long, but this still needs a lot of time to express itself. A very good Valpolicella Ripasso that does not aim at being a cheap Amarone knock-off but has a Valpolicella dignity all its own. From a selection of grapes from different hillside vineyards than those that give the grapes for t...

The Tedeschi family has dedicated its energy and enthusiasm to growing and producing wine in Valpolicella for many generations. They first purchased vineyards in the area in 1630. Today the Tedeschi family manages 74 hectares of vineyards, of which 29 hectares are family owned. Although Tedeschi is considered one of the top producers of Amarone and Recioto wines, the family has never rested on its laurels, continually striving to improve the structure of the wine by keeping the vines’ yields low. Recently Tedeschi became one of the ten founder members of the Amarone Families Association, which is dedicated to protecting the integrity of Amarone Grapes : Corvina 30%, Corvinone 30%, Rondinela 40%, Region : Italy / Veneto / Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOC Maker : Riccardo Tedeschi Notes : Peat smoke runs through this more traditional style Amarone with hints of dried cherry, raisins, cigar box, spices and pepper tones. The wine has good structure and a long finish. An ideal wine for the cellar Serve : At 16-18°C with red meats, game and cheese. ABV : 15.00%
