Let's explore the amazing Tedeschi estate and taste their amazing Amazon Capitel Monte Olmi
A good, proper blend of grape varietals can make the difference between a good wine and an out-of-this-world wine that takes your wine drinking to a whole new level of enjoyment. The Tedeschi wine estate is specialized in crafting the latter of these two, blending a big mix of different local grapes (Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and more) into their production process.
But it doesn’t end there. Come with Filippo Bartolotta as he explores the full process behind the creation of this top-tier Amarone di Valpolicella Riserva wine from the Veneto region. Reflective of the great wine-making traditions that classic Amarone wine stick to, this is an inky, black-fruit driven selection, a vintage that Filippo thinks you might fall in love with.
What’s not to love? Following the examples set by great Amarone wines, we can find notes of prunes, menthol, tobacco, juniper, and chocolate along with other surprising aromas just waiting to be released into our glasses.
The Tedeschi Capitel Monte Olmi Amarone Riserva certainly is one of the winery’s oldest labels, and represents in fact, it’s very first Cru. A lovely persistence, sweet alcohol, and dry sugars make this a terrific wine to pair with all of your favorite strongly-flavoured foods - think aged cheese and foods with great structure.
