From: Valpolicella, Italy
Blend: 35% Corvina, 35% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella and 10% other complementary grapes
Winemaker Notes. Strong ruby red. Clear and transparent. The nose is ample and complex. Notes of cherry, raspberry and red currant give freshness to the wine. The wine is fruity, well-balanced and well-structured. Alcohol and acidity are in good harmony. The wine is warm and round. The after taste confirms the character of the bouquet. This wine has a long-lasting and persistent flavor.
Critical Acclaim. JS 92 James Suckling
Tightly packed plum and berry on the nose, with some laurel leaves and a hint of black pepper. Medium-to full-bodied with lots of tension to the fruit and quite a tight tannin frame. It’s all there, but this is like a closed fist. Needs time to open up and expand. Best from 2023.
RP 90 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Tedeschi 2018 Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso Capitel San Rocco is 35% Corvina, 35% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella and 10% other complementary grapes. The wine is aged in oak casks for 18 months (with 100,000 bottles made). The bouquet has hints of mesquite smoke and toasted spice that frame dark plum and dried cherry. It's a classic wine as far as Ripasso goes, executed with a very clean and fruit-forward style.
About. 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.
