2019 Tedeschi Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso Capitel San Rocco
This wine is a still wine, the taste is nice and firm, predominantly cherry and has a slight complexity. The fragrance consists mainly of cherries and raspberries, currants and raisins, ripened and apricot kernels. Medium-bodied for very refined. Unlike many Ripasso's, this is a real serious wine with a good balance between the acid and the sweet.
Tedeschi Ripasso Capitel San Rocco is the dry red wine based on dried grapes from the Valpolicella region. Ripasso is a traditional method in which during the 2nd fermentation the must is brought into contact with the warm dried grape skins from which the Amarone wines are pressed. The result is a special dry red wine, full and powerful.
The Tedeschi family has been supplying wines of undisputed top quality for years. Not only the wines from dried grapes, but also the 'ordinary' Valpolicellas can count as specialties of the great family business. Partly due to a maturation of about eight to ten months in French oak, an unrecognizably powerful Valpolicella is created. The Tedeschi winery makes a wide variety of wines. In addition to red wines, white wines are also made from grapes from neighboring regions such as Soave and Bianco die Custoza. Some of the grapes are purchased from other producers. But of course the best wines come from their own vineyards in the heart of the region, the Valpolicella Classico.
