Tedeschi Capitel Monte Olmi Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico DOC 20 2006
Monte Olmi is the name of this vineyard, located at Pedemonte di Valpolicella in the heart of the Classic Valpolicella zone. The vineyard has a south-western exposure and is 2.5 hectares in size. It is designed on terraces to ensure water removal in case of abundant rainfall. At the same time the depth and the basically clayey structure of the terrain function to retain water during dry periods. This wine is strong ruby red in colour with a light amber sheen - clear and transparent. On the nose there are notes of cherry, raspberry and red currant combined with notes of Slavonia oak. The palate shows an elegant and robust structure with good acidity.
For generations, the Tedeschi family has been hand-crafting wines that represent the traditions, quality, and value of Italy's storied Valpolicella region. Today, the winery is entirely family owned and operated, and with its recent acquisition of the Maternigo vineyard, is investing in organic and biodynamic winemaking techniques.
