This Valpolicella Doc Superiore Maternigo is a particularly powerful, classic and big red wine. Really another gem of top wine house Tedeschi from the Italian Veneto. Wijnhuis Tedeschi is still one of the undisputed toppers of the Valpolicella, and is therefore fully committed to recognition for these Valpolicella wines. The Maternigo is beautifully clear ruby red in color with very refined aromas of sweet black cherries, berries and plums, beautiful red fruit in combination with a hint of sweetness and sweet, vanilla and chocolate. This wine tastes beautifully powerful and ripe, is warm, supple and sultry, with a light bitter, delicious cherry fruit, good acids and a strong aftertaste.

40% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, and 30% Rondinella grapes were used to produce this Maternigo, which only comes from one vineyard. This Impervio vineyard is located at an altitude of 400 meters and has a bottom of weathered white and yellow marble. The harvest is mid-October, after which the grapes with the stalks are fermented for even more depth and character. Maturation in large wooden Slavonic oak barrels of 20-25 hl.

Because of its pronounced strength, maturity and depth, this wine fits perfectly with pepper steak, hare's back, hare pepper, venison steak and hard cheeses.

Vineyard for 2017 Tedeschi Valpolicella Doc Superiore Maternigo

Tedeschi is one of the undisputed highlights of the Valpolicella. Not only the wines from dried grapes, but also the 'normal' Valpolicellas may count as specialties of the family business Tedeschi. Father Renzo has now handed things over to his son Riccardo, who is now putting the finishing touches. This newly new generation gives the company some extra impulses, for example with a surprising new Valpolicella. Partly due to the maturation of eight or ten months in French oak, Riccardo creates an unrecognizable powerful Valpolicella, something completely different from the light wine we are used to. This wine comes from Fabriseria's own vineyard, from which a fantastic Amarone is harvested in peak years.

Tedeschi makes a wide range of wines, not only red, but also white from grapes from neighboring regions such as Soave and Bianco die Custoza. Some of the grapes are purchased from other producers. In that case, Tedeschi exercises intensive supervision during the growing season on the state of affairs in the vineyard. The best wines come from our own vineyards from the heart of the region, the Valpolicella Classico. With a few other producers, Tedeschi is committed to stricter rules for Valpolicella, Amarone and Recioto. It is rightly believed here that wines based on too high yields, originating from the fertile Po area, are actually unworthy of the DOC Valpolicella. And these wines certainly do not match the perfectionism of special Valpolicella producers such as Fratelli Tedeschi.
