Winemaker Notes

A strong, ruby-red color that is both clear and transparent. Its bouquet is fresh and young with notes of cherries and red currants. Its taste is lively acidic, well balanced with its structure and alcohol content. The finish confirms the notes in the bouquet. A young Valpolicella wine, pleasing and elegant. This wine can be preserved for two-to-three years even though it is a young and ready-to-enjoy wine.

Blend: 25% Corvina, 25% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, 10% Molinara, and 10% Rossignola, Oseleta, Negrara and Dindarella

Wine Spectator
This subtle red weaves cherry, pomegranate, pekoe tea, chocolate liqueur and lots of dried herb notes, backed by light tannins and acidity. Elegant overall, with a long, spiced finish. Drink now through 2016. 1,700 cases imported.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Valpolicella Classico Lucchine is a gorgeous glass of wine, especially for the money. There is nothing fancy here, just layers of plump, radiant fruit buffered by lively acidity. I can't think of too many finer wines for the money. This is a fabulous effort from Tedeschi. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2013.

Tedeschi, Valpolicella, 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.

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.
