A ruby red color with garnet reflections. Clear and transparent. A fresh bouquet with clear notes of cherry and currants. Good body, well-balanced and harmonic structure. The after-taste confirms the characteristics of the bouquet. Cellar for up to five years.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is fabulous. Dark cherries, plums, menthol, leather and licorice flow effortlessly from this rich, round Amarone. This shows marvelous richness and density while avoiding heaviness in a moderately concentrated style for Amarone. Bitter chocolate and mocha linger on the intense yet beautifully crafted finish. This is another superb effort from Tedeschi. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

Wine Spectator
This silky red shows solid structure, with light tannins framing the notes of sun-dried currant and strawberry, macerated plum, cigar box spice and sanguine mineral. There's a subtle juiciness throughout, with a hint of briar lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2026. 700 cases imported.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Starts off with clean integration and elegant aromas of ripe cherry, forest berry, vanilla bean, clove and ginger. It continues its impressive performance with smooth tannins and a velvety texture.

Tedeschi, Veneto, Italy
Image of winery

Nicolò Tedeschi founded the company that bears his name in the Valpolicella area in 1824. He was a genuine personality of his time, renowned for his skill and moral stature. Throughout the years, his family has continued the traditional wine-making process, and today, the winery is owned by the fifth generation of Tedeschis: Antonietta, Sabrina and Riccardo. Each has various responsibilities, but it is Riccardo, the oenologist, who deals with production and acts as Tedeschi's Export Director.

Tedeschi utilizes two traditional winemaking techniques almost as old as winemaking itself. Amarone della Valpolicella is the only mainstream style where the wines are fermented to dryness, yielding deeply colored and concentrated wines, rich in character, and often rich in alcohol, too. The ripasso method, utilizing the drained but unpressed must of an Amarone, provides some kick to a more basic wine and is also unique to the region.

Each of Tedeschi’s wines must not only be as good as possible, but also as personal as it can be. Each has its own style and a clearly distinguishable character—the genuine “Tedeschi Trademark.” In order to achieve this objective, the family monitors every phase of the wine-making process, from the vineyard to the cellar, without ever trying to substitute nature or its laws in any way.

A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine.

The sub-region of Valpolicella (meaning “valley of cellars” in Italian) is a series of north to south valleys and is the source of Veneto’s best red wine with the same name. Valpolicella—the wine—is juicy, spicy, tart and packed full of red cherry flavors. Corvina makes up the backbone of the blend with Rondinella, Molinara, Croatina and others playing supporting roles. Recioto and Amarone follow the same blending patterns but are made from grapes left to dry for a few months before pressing, resulting in wines that are intense, full-bodied, heady and often, quite cerebral.

Soave, based on the indigenous Garganega grape, is the famous white here—made ultra popular in the 1970s at a time when quantity was more important than quality. Today one can find great values on whites from Soave, making it a perfect choice as an everyday sipper! But the more recent local, increased focus on low yields and high quality winemaking in the original Soave zone, now called Soave Classico, gives the real gems of the area. A fine Soave Classico will exhibit a round palate full of flavors such as ripe pear, apricot, or yellow peach, have smoky and exotic aromas and a sapid, fresh, mineral-driven finish.

Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where the crisp and refreshing style is easy to maintain; the ultra-popular sparkling wine, Prosecco, comes from here as well.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
