The Monte Olmi is made with Corvina (30%), Corvinone (30%), Rondinella (30%), Molinara, Rossignola, Oseleta, Negrara, Dindarella, Croatina and forselina (10%) and has been raised for 24-36 months in barrels of Slovenian oak. The vineyard, 2.5 hectares in size, is 20 years old and bears the name Monte Olmi. It is located at Pedemonte di Valpolicella, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. The Riserva is only made in the best years such as 2017.

The grapes are picked by hand at the end of September/beginning of October. The grapes are then dried, under controlled temperature and humidity, for a period of about 4 months. This causes the grapes to lose about 30 to 40% of their weight. The grapes are then gently pressed and the fermentation process is initiated. This fermentation takes place at a low temperature of about 15ºC and lasts about 2 months. The wine continues to mature in Slovenian oak barriques for a period of 2-3 years. After the wine has been bottled, the bottles are placed in the estate's cellars for further maturation for about 6 months before they are sold.

The Tedeschi Capitel Monte Olmi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva has a beautiful intense ruby red wine with hints of cherries, raspberries, currants and Slovenian oak. The taste is full and robust, with a good structure and confirms the scents. The aftertaste is long. This wine has had three red glasses in the Gambero Rosso for years, the highest rating!

The Tedeschi family is also seen as one of the godfathers of Amarone. The family has been producing wines since 1630. Renzo Tedeschi is a leading winemaker and one of the top internationally. Despite all this, it is still a real family business because the children Antoinette, Sabrina and Riccardo have now also joined the company.
