Azienda Agricola Fratelli Tedeschi
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.
