LA FABRISERIA – Amarone della Valpolicella DOC Classico
This wine is made from a high selection of grapes coming from the vineyard La Fabriseria located in the high hill of Valpolicella Classica (Sant’Ambrogio and Fumane communes). The aim, when producing this wine, is to obtain great structure combined with an elegant aroma. This is the basis for continued and increasing excellence during the wine’s entire period of evolution. This Amarone is the fruit of Renzo Tedeschi’s passion for good wine and his constant desire to strive for the best. Nature has not always been generous : that is why, since 1983, this wine has only been produced in certain outstanding vintages.
